Squabble is a form of arguing and not nitpicking. More aggressive than quibbles and quibbles tend to be one sided affairs where squabbles involve two parties taking part. One can quibble while another just nods and lets it ride over them without rising to the bait and squabbling over it.

I didnt get the hobble one, dint know that. Funn, in dutch you have hobbelpaard, which means/is the word we use for rocking horse. But allways thought it was because hobbel(en) means well what you get when going over a bumpy road, little movements. (and pretty sure that is it what it stands for) never knew that in english hobble means to restrict a horses movement. Now I got to look up if there are connected. Many english words come from dutch. (or to say it differently old english has more in common with modern dutch than with modern english)
Level 67
May 19, 2019 It actually directly names dutch, usually it goes a steps further to the source, and say Protogermanic, which in most cases supplied cognates in other germanic languages. (german, norse etc)

other words often come from french, well through french from latin
