Because there's no direct connection between a word and what it represents, different groups of people have different words that stand for the same things.

    There is no direct link or connection between objects and words that represent them. Words are symbols that stand for something else, but there s no relationship between the word and the object it represents.

    All languages are actively changing and evolving. The meaning of words change through time, and new words appear all the time.

    This is the result of our language and our culture being inseparable.

    But the meaning of words is arbitrary, so different groups can have different words that stand for the same thing.
