Discussion of "kurtenfa"

Comment #1: malglico calque
Curtis W Franks (Sun Jan 18 21:58:11 2015)

I would not recommend borrowing so directly from English. There is a
relationship between square shapes and square numbers, of course, but it
is not very important or even natural. Moreover, kurfa applies to any
orthotope or any shape containing a right angle (thus implying also cubes)
and possibly anything orthogonal (which is a universe of possibilities far
greater than may be imagined).
