@mlemweb Wow, is that a real latin word?
That one is actually German, but it's so fun!
It took me a whole day to find accurate translations for Rocken and Kunkel even though it was clear from context that they meant distaff (as in there were pictures of distaffs and the image summaries identified them as Rocken or Kunkel) because a distaff is an outdated technology and doesn't make the cut for most modern language dictionaries.
I now have a list of the words for spindle, spindle whorl, distaff, loom weight, etc in Latin, Italian, German, and French.
