AKS BS: the funny business of names (104* d) RE: BS: the funny business of names 13 Jun 02

Are you mixing up schlachten 'to butcher' and schneiden 'to cut', Alex? As far as I know, Schneider literally does mean 'cutter' (primarily with scissors) but it translates into English as 'tailor' and has no connotation of cutting any meat - butcher- nor surgeonlike. That's why Dr. Schneider/Tailor sounds rather 'reconstructive' to me, doesn't it! (But again, that's how the surgeons are these days; aren't they even tailoring new john thomases and fanny hills ...?)
