λουκάνικο sounds strikingly similar to the word we use in Northern Italy for sausage, which is "luganega". I bet they originate from the same word! Lucky me I guess, so I can remember this new word easily
Although not as much as the Italian word, the Hebrew one slightly resembles λουκάνικο too, with "naknik" (especially similar to the "κάνικο" part)
Λουκάνικο can also mean 'hot dog'?
No, a hot dog is a χοτ ντογκ in Greek. :-)
