Tracking down an entry (baby's first words)

Heya -

Elsejournal, someone was talking about "the word for mother in every language is 'mama'..." and I was trying to track down the linguaphiles discussion on the topic. Anyone have an idea where it is? (I'm having no luck so far.)

Also...I'm willing to do the legwork to track down redundant tags, in an effort to free some up. Would one of the mods be open to/able to retag some entries to make the comm tags work a little better? (They're pretty good over all, but it can always be improved!)
