Word of the Day

Thursday, September 1, 2016


There are languages in which corns (on the skin) or fish eyes are referred to as chicken eyes, like Czech kuří oko, Slovak kurie oko, German Hühnerauge, and Japanese 鶏眼 (keigan). In others, it's fish eyes, like Portuguese olho de peixe, Spanish ojo de pescado, and French œil de poisson. Italian has also opted for a bird, but is more specific: it is occhio di pernice, partridge eye.
