Just for the record the word is "anthropomorphize."


Which doesn't make a whole lot of sense to me, as that word should - and in certain contexts does - mean "give the shape of humans"... like this: http://genecatlow.keenspot.com/d/20121228.html

No, LuckyDog does not change Sweetums' shape to make her look like a human. In fact, I don't know of anyone who's actually done that to a living animal. I do know of someone who has gone through a lot of bother (tattoos and surgeries) to ailuromorphize herself...

("Anthropologize", which I guess would mean "subject to anthropological study", is definitely not the word we're looking for.)
