Can I just confirm. You are saying that 一窝猪 exists as a set saying and you can't normally use 一窝 for other zodiac animals?

comment Is the character 年 (or its etymology) related to the mythical beast in Chinese mythology?
@Huang - Yes, agreed. Just wanted to check if that was the same as the bottom character in the 甲骨文 you provided. Now I understand. Thanks!

Wiktionary sites 秊 as the oldest version of 年. Not sure if that is the same one in your answer. If it is the bottom half is 千. The meaning being grain harvested after an extended period of time.

comment Use of 龙 in the idiom 车水马龙
Very interesting: 车像流水, 马像游龙. I always assumed that 车水马龙 would be four different things, not two.

I don't quite get your question. Are you asking if 年 was named nián because the beast was called nián?
