    And before that, Spanish.

    Do you live near Casa Grande, Baldie? Ever visit El Mirage or Chino Valley? Guadalupe maybe? Been to Oro Valley, or San Luis, or Sierra Vista?

    Or for that matter Hell, which I believe is a town in the US somewhere and "hell" is the German word for "bright", Hell as in damnation in German is Holle (hole). German was the most spoken language in the US until the first world war but the Kaiser's plans for unrestricted submarine warfare and a Mexican invasion of the Southern US states were intercepted by the forerunner of GCHQ and after a cover for how they'd got the information was invented they told the US government and German became unpopular.

    Edit: the history isn't quite what I thought for the town, the writers of the page have the word for clear wrong (clear is klar (sp?)) but hey:

    "Question: What's the language of your land?" (OP) represents a metaphor for our patriotic allegiance, the national anthem we salute and the flag we fly.
