rolig commented on the word koljeno
This is curious. I wonder if the linking idea is that of turning. Compare the Slavic root for "wheel" (kol-).

madmouth commented on the word koljeno
lit. "knee", colloquially "generation". the Latin roots for 'generation' and 'knee' are almost identical; I wonder if SBC derived this word from that similarity.
