comment Why is the plural of reindeer sometimes “reindeer”?
@PeterShor I've looked up the etymology of reindeer, and while it may be cognate with "deer", it doesn't look like it's directly formed from it. I've edited the question accordingly.

@Jim something made out of boxwood? en.wiktionary.org/wiki/boxen#Etymology_1 (before looking it up, I only knew the "Etymology 2" version)

"Mongoose" and "moose" don't share the same pluralisation as "goose", nor does "fox" share the same pluralisation as "ox".

comment What's the etymology of “Blue dollar”?
@Mitch maybe I should have asked on the Spanish stack exchange. Ironically, in Spanish, they use "blue", not "azul".

comment Was “the dark side” used a long time ago in a country far far away?
@Jim actually, it's only "a long time ago", even though it's in a galaxy far far away.
