What is your word for 'round'? Could you check whether your language associates the concept 'round' with 'wrong'? I can give examples in Dutch: 'rond' and especially 'om' (around ?) - omkopen : to bribe (to buy around, lit.) - een omweg: a detour, a way around, the long way, not the straight way - een bocht maken : to make a bend/ a turn (to do something deviating from the right way, I'd think, impredictable - and thus 'prove' your unreliability) - hij wringt zich in bochten maybe : to have to perform contortions As you see: bends and turns have to do with being round, and contortion implies some turning around. So I am looking for references to the concept, not just to the word only.
