Interesting how gloves literally means hand covering, and socks means T-shirt for the feet
It's funny how the meaning of 'kaus' shifted to 'T-shirt' as the word comes from Dutch 'kous' (='sock').
Actually, quite a lot of words from the Indonesian language come from the Dutch. For example, opa and oma means grandpa and grandma I think.
Sure, but the funny bit is that you'd expect simply "kaus" to be sock (because it's the initial word), and something like "kaus tubuh", "body sock", to mean shirt.
That's fascinating. I love those strange little things about language.
