I just like the colloquial translation of ‘bricks’ into different languages. In Spanish it is ‘ladrillos’ which implies small bricks, the sort you’d construct a chimney with. German comes again as ‘stones’ with the Dutch ‘steen’ sounding related. Serbs and such name them ‘cubes’. Indonesia’s ‘bata/batu’ encompasses the identical brick/stone/rock thought. Turkish ‘tuğla’ is a brick or tile. Funny to the English ear? In Danish they’re ‘klods’.
Incidentally that little anecdote in regards to the Greek phrase lego (λέγω) which means ‘I constructed it’ is a bit of far-fetched. The historical root is extra like ‘I converse/select/imply’ with the closest thought being “I bring together”. More generally, this phrase has turn into the basis in lots of languages of the verb “to read”.
