Default Re: Pernese versus Terran terms

Actually...

cot1
noun Brit. a small bed with high barred sides for a baby or very young child.
— ORIGIN Hindi, ‘bedstead, hammock’.


cot2
noun 1 a small shelter for livestock. 2 archaic a small, simple cottage.
— ORIGIN Old English, related to COTE.





so, cot for cottage isn't even Pernese, just archaic Terran
