Actually, that's a common misconception. Not many Englishmen are willing to admit that about 84% of their language is French. (Accursed French-English rivalry, when shall you end?)

And I know that Horse is really Cheval...I was hoping that no one would check my error...guess you did. *Sheepish grin*

84%? Nah. I'd never believe that.

Here's a good chart from Wikipedia (which was very interesting to see, in my case; very cool info):

I only noticed the horse thing because I speak French. A side-effect of being Canadian. ^^;

This may be true, but differences between the yordles is greater than the ones in humans. Humans all have the same bone structure, have most of our hair on our head, and have skin tones of varying shades of brown.

Yordles have different ear placements, so that means their skeletal and nervous system would have to be slightly different. We also see from Rumble that colors between male yordles have vary drastically.

Are we all thinking into this just a bit too much?
Not that it is a bad thing, I'm currently writing a fanfic and doing waaay to much research for it.
