So. In Dutch, there's a decent number of words that end in "schap." The word for sheep is "schaap." Hence the hilariously punny get well card I once bought a colleague which says "beterschaap" ("beterschap" meaning "get well soon") next to a picture of a sheep. Interestingly, though, the word "wetenschap" means "science," even though "wet" on its own means law (presumably the jump comes through "weten," to know). But this means that "wetenschaap" would be "sheep of laws," which pleases me.
