The Hindi word for cabbage is band gobhi-literally “closed cauliflower.” The English word cauliflower comes from the Latin caulis (cabbage) plus flower. Both languages refer one vegetable directly to the other, but in opposite directions. Open & Closed: A Linguistic Approach to Vegetables takes this simple idea and illustrates it beautifully with a flexagon fold book structure that starts with a cabbage, and opens up to reveal a cauliflower.
