    translating "Goose" to hebrew

    cutu, wouldn't it be better to translate "Goose" into "אווז" instead of "מוס"?
    I never heard of an animal named "מוס", and sure enough, I've checked the dictionary and it also says "אווז". so either it has to be corrected, or I would be glad to learn a better translation.

    have a nice day!

    Re: Animals

    Yes, you are right, Goose - אווז. Sorry for that mistake was really stupid of me :P.

    Anyhow there is an animal called " מוס " and if you look good, its there on the list.

    checked מוס too.

    אייל קורא (שם מדעי: Alces alces; מכונה "אייל אמריקני" או "מוס"), מין יונק מכפיל פרסה יחיד בסוגו (Alces) ממשפחת האיילים והמין הגדול ביותר במשפחה זו.

    conclusion: this animal couldbe called מוס, but אייל קורא is better.

    הוא ניזון מענפים, גבעולים רכים, ניצנים וקליפות עצים. מכאן גם מקור שמו האנגלי, moose, שפירושו בשפת שבט האתבסקה האינדיאני "אוכל ענפים".

    הציטוטים מוויקיפדיה)העברית)

    look up "alces alces" on wikimedia. pictures of traffic signs are funny

    BTW, how can I not mess up the right-to-left writing?

    thanks!

    Re: Animals

    Espero que aquí se pueda "postear" en castellano (español).
    ¿Son concientes de que hay más de un millón de especies de animales descriptas? Tienen en mente algún tipo de limitación, del tipo "sólo vertebrados". Aún así, nos las tendremos que ver con decenas de miles de nombres. Cualquier duda, consultar "The tree of life", tolweb.org.

    Re: Animals

    hey, this is really great.
    I have a list in excel of more than 500 bird names in at least 4 languages (FR, EN, DE, NL ) and latin. I have first to fix my excel program on my pc and will upload it as soon as possible. May be someone could then do a retrofit based on the latin term with other languages and have a separate file for birds. Same for fish and other classes of animals.

    That kind of lists is something the EU should be doing. It would cost a lot versus al the billions they throw out the windows and would be usefull for millions of people around the world...

    Question that comes to my mind: what will happen with the glossary? Should it not be provided to someone who has an animal/birds site? For birds I knew one in France. It was that person that provided me the original excel file and I double checked/completed several terms. The site is just great! have a look (add 3w before it. Not yet allowed to post plain URL's)
    "oiseaux.net/oiseaux/passeriformes/mesange.bleue.html" to see the blue tit.

    I have no particular relation the person besides the fact we exhanged some files. He has made that basic glossary some of you would like. We might help him with other languages??

    Re: Animals

    I have added the names in Portuguese. There seem to be some repetitions in the page, but I didn't try to fix it. Some of the translations I was not sure about.
