Apologies for going off-topic, but what might be the meaning of "Schweinekuhle" ? In a 1927 work, it glosses a Moluccan proto-form, and -kuhle does not occur (at least not in a sense that would fit with Schweine-) in my Germ. dictionary. Private replies will keep the list from being needlessly clogged, also preserve respondents' 5-msg. limit..... Thanks.
