> Perl and Python are also common words.

I don't think perl is an English word (pérola is spelt pearl in English and perla in Spanish). Purl is a somewhat technical English word referring to a kind of stitch, as well as several other obscure and/or regional meanings.

I couldn't find "perl" in any dictionary I had at hand except for computing dictionaries, where it is, sadly, a common term. :)
