Languages fascinate me. The Navajo code talkers have always interested me. Figuring out the click sounds of certain languages in Southern Africa is frustrating - but great fun when you start getting the hang of it
Languages are very useful to scientists tracing where ancient people spread to and from. While reading the book, "Guns Germs and Steel" (great read BTW) the author mentioned that in hotter climates, there was no easy way track people like in the north as all their dwellings had long ago rotted into the jungles. Instead they used language. Kinda like knowing that since the english language does not agree upon bonnet/hood of a car means that North Americans and te English separated before the invention of the automobile.

Those roads mostly follow survey section lines, a section is a mile square.
Southeast Missouri's nickname is Swampeast Missouri because much of it was swamp before drainage ditches were dug and the swampland turned into farmland.
If you want to see flatland, go there.
Here in the Ottawa area as well....you see many instances of "baseline", "2nd line", 8th concession, etc

Languages are very useful
I've told this on an old co-worker before, he was kind of like Yogi Berra with his sayings.
He once said:
All languages are the same, just the words are different.
