    When I first came across "cha," I didn't know what it was.

    Still suspicious of cha, it took several years. No reason to be suspicious, except that they didn't include the Americas on this map!

    Cha if by land, Tea if by sea (click)

    i enjoy how language moves through time, but after a few hundred years it moves too much for easy comprehension...

    i also enjoy word play... :)

    Words/language do change. It's what we should expect.

    Indo-European covers a wide area of living languages. Sino-Tibetan ...

    The twists and turns must not be easy to follow, even by the experts. They develop their own specialized written language to show the different sounds not found in English or French or whatever language they are using. The layperson is left with greater puzzlement. Finally it becomes, "I will take your word for it!"
