What are the Uralic cognates of Finnish mäyrä "badger" ?
Karelian has mägry 'badger' which reminds me of Magdalenian MUC for a bull,
used for anything compact, for example Swiss Mocke can refer to a Föifer
Mocke, a round bonbon on a popsickle for five cents, or it can call the
late opera singer Pavarotti, or it can name the motor in a car among
aficionados, or it can be a pet name for a toddler, my sweet chubby child.
