[Haskell-cafe] German names for kinds and sorts

An odd suggestion I know, but take a look at some bibles.  The King 
James Bible uses the word "kind" to describe different animals in Genesis 1:

^24 And God said, Let the earth bring forth the living creature after 
his kind, cattle, and creeping thing, and beast of the earth after his 
kind: and it was so. <http://www.kingjamesbibleonline.org/Genesis-1-24/>

At least some other English translations use the same word (I'm not a 
bible scholar, so I can't give you a detailed list).  But you might try 
finding out what German bibles use in that passage.
