The world describing the natural world is slowly disappearing.

People increasingly live in cities and urban areas where they lose contact with the nature.

Alongwith the ability to properly express the beauty of the world that surrounds us.

Pirr is a lovely word which we use in Scotland but oh so rarely and almost never in England.

Are there any words that describe nature in your language that from lack of usage could be redundant from an active language.

pet·ri·chor

ˈpeˌtrīkôr/

noun

a pleasant smell that frequently accompanies the first rain after a long period of warm, dry weather.

Binomial nomenclature can also be a fun way to improve vocabulary. Quercus is the genus name for oak trees whence we derive the English word cork. The genus name for wrens is Troglodytes, or cave-dweller originally from Greek.

The Great kiskadee gets its name because it's thought to sound like it's saying *"qu'est-ce qu'il dit". It is also a member of the tyrant flycatchers which derives its name from the once strained relationship between the US and the British Monarchy —specifically, King George.
