    No, but I'm interested in linguistics to a certain extent. It would be cool though to know one. Usefulness doesn't have to play a role.

    We were talking about definite status in Germanic, and I extended it to Indo-European.

    There are Scandinavian languages, Germanic languages, Slavic languages, and then Romance languages. Greek and English are European anomalies.
    You better not let the Welsh see this.

    I disagree. As long as it doesn't overtake the entire discussion it's okay to go slightly off topic within the category.
