comment What did “google” mean in the 1900s?
Hugo, I clicked on the search link (google in the period of 1898-1902) you gave. I got this message - Your search - "google" - did not match any book results. Did you get different results that time?

comment Difference between 'than others' and 'than the others'
@Carlo_R. I'm not following. Are you saying that context is always present? For ex., I wrote the statement in my question on the classroom blackboard. There may not be any context involved that would specify whether other animals were specified previously.
