Was playing around with the model. Thanks Philip for the example.
Take the following as a random talk about the many implications or extensions that can derive from it.

Let's assume sb is not looking for the French puddle, but starts from 'dog' as point of discussion and
tries to derive analogies across languages from its inflections.

Let's assume we look for a mapping of 'dogged' (stubbornly relentless, persistent):
we find similar concepts in other languages (perse2ve2rance, obstination -fr; perseverante, ostinato -it;
hartnaeckig, verbissen- de > interestingly: verbissen from Biss - bite; hartnaeckig / probably
from Nacken - back, lit. hard back > similar expression in It: "avere le spalle forti" /lit. to have strong shoulders)

Let's go for "to be dogged" (e.g. to be dogged by an illness)
We have the concept of 'persecution' in at least four languages:
*ser maltratado por/ser castigado por/ser perseguidado por (Sp)
*verfolgt von (Ge) (to be persecuted)
*zhe2mo (persecution, torment)(Ch); wei3sui2 (lit. "tail behind") versus the normal gou3 ("dog")
*perseguitato, maltrattato (It)

Let's look for a collocation with the word, e.g. "to dog around": Here we have at least two meanings. work hard 2. to cheat on sb (dogging, slang: a woman picking up men at random)

if we go for adj. plus word (e.g. top dog), we also get another new meaning (in this case: the leader or chief
of a group). Interestingly, in German we don't have the dog but the deer or stag to denote the concept (Platzhirsch).

Sorry, I forgot the diagram with the example.
