Tribond Tuesday


("Tri" is Welsh for "three." Most of you probably know that "cinco" is Spanish for five. )

They're all numbers!

Man, this one was easy.

(Before you yell at me, I know the real answer, but I want to give everyone else a shot, too.)

They all contain the number of letters represented by the number.
i.e. "tri" = three and has 3 letters.

Heh. I would've tried to come up with a common etymological peculiarity for an hour if the other comments hadn't stopped me.

Good work O. and Amy. Other potential candidates included три (Russian), chwech (Welsh, again), and the character for one in Chinese / Japanese.

Logan - It's funny to see how people's minds work.
