Caveat: obviously, these are not absolute rules, but rather tendencies

In fact, I also find that in English, if you exclude perhaps technical jargon, there are so many words having widely different significances in different contexts whereas we have distinct ones. Or terms to describe very common things are clearly compound of simpler words, e.g. "necklace" where we have "collana", or "asscheek" (yes, I also know about "buttocks") where we have "chiappa".
