- The English word hazard comes from the Persian word (via Arabic, Spanish and French) izr which means a die.
- The Spanish word for head is cabeza which comes from the Latin capita (as in the phrase per capita). So where does the French tête come from? From the Latin word testa meaning vase. Bizarre, non? But what's even stranger is that exactly the same thing happened in German. The German kopf comes from the Germanic kupaz meaning (and from where we get the word) "cup".
- Grammar and glamour come from the same word.
- Chicago means garlic.
And that'll do for now.
