  •  Excuse me, but who are "we"? (0+ / 0-)

    Europeans?

    If so, of course you Europeans have moose/elk and dear!

    And, sorry, but "we" (again, who is this we?) did not choose to call any of our animals anything.

    What I wrote is prefectly clear, amigo. Not sure what your issue is.

    And, no, I'm not intrested in role-playing games or Lord of the Rings. If that is where you see some confusion, well, this diary is about linguistics. So what I said stands.
