- corral:  English acquired corral from Spanish corral, but its previous history is disputed. Some etymologists consider that it is of southern African origin, from the language of the Hottentot people, but others derive it from Vulgar Latin *currale ‘enclosure for vehicles’, which would have been based on Latin currus ‘two-wheeled wagon’ (source of English car and carry). Kraal  originated as an Afrikaans adaptation of Portuguese curral, corresponding to Spanish corral.
