An­dar and Am­bu­lance

An­dar, the com­mon Span­ish word for “to walk”, usu­al­ly in the metaphor­i­cal sense of “to go,” is cousins with the Eng­lish… am­bu­lance, as well as its cousin, to am­ble.

Both come from the Latin am­bu­lare, mean­ing, “to walk.”

We can see the a‑n-d of an­dar map to the a‑m-b of am­bu­lance and am­ble very clear­ly.
