I think nymph is the word you want. See definition number four here: http://www.infoplease.com/ipd/A0563000.html
I don't know if there is another word for that, but I doubt it.
(A foal is, as you noted, a young horse, either male or female.)
I wonder what is the term for ' young cockroaches ', the exercise that I came across sure gives me wrong answer. It says " foal " but when I looked it up in the dictionaries, it means ' Young horse ' . Out of nearly 10 dictionaries, only one says it is ' nymphs '. Is there any other word for it ?
Wow :D I learn something new every hour on this board. Thanx guys :D
If you don't mind, I have shifted this question into the Ask a Teacher section, where it's probably more at home.Originally Posted by whl626
