varken = pig, vlees = flesh. Pig Flesh = Pork.
Wouldnt varken = pigs ? Just double checking.
varken = pig,
varkens = pigs
Why is it varkensvlees? What is varken? I don't see similarities to german or english words...
How about aardvark. Earth pig.
Oh well, of course, "Ferkel" is another word for pig in german that is similar to "varken" Thank you for helping my poor mind. ;)
Looks there's an etymological connection between the 'vark' bit and 'pork', and between 'varken' and 'porcine'. I think I'll be thinking of it as porker-flesh!
The audio sounds like "varketvlees", not "varkensvlees"
