    That made me think of latin words for rat and mouse


    Mus Maximus; Mus Minimus

    Douche Minimus (little douche)

    What's the etymology of the word etymology?

    Are you sure? I thought mouse was mus or mus musculus in the case of the housemouse and rat is rattus.

    And I just looked up etymology: "The word etymology is derived from the Greek word ἐτυμολογία, etymologia, itself from ἔτυμον, etymon, meaning "true sense" and the suffix -logia, denoting "the study of""

    I stand corrected. It is possible different terms were in use at different times or different regions of the republic/empire

    But the general essence of it is that there was little distinction between mice and rats. The rough translations would be small mouse and big mouse.

    Further research shows 'rattus' originated from vulgar (common) latin. However, 'mus' may have been used as a generic blanket label for both species.

    Again, I think it might depend on era and location.

    Sounds plausible. The Spanish terms rata and ratón are weird though because -ón is usually augmentative and so a mouse would be a "big rat". Am I missing something?
