Something else about Belize is that the first people to develop Belize were the maya and that was around 1500 B.C.E. Belize is located in Central America and it is bordered to the north by Mexico, to the south and west by Guatemala and it is east by the Caribbean Sea. We are a diverse country with various cultures and languages. We also have the lowest population density in Central America with 35 people per square mile or 14 people per square kilometer. Belize is also known for its extreme biodiversity and distinctive ecosystems. On the coast, there is a swampy coastal plain with mangrove swamps. In the south and interior there are hills and low mountains. Most of our land is undeveloped and is forested with hardwoods. It is a part of the Mesoamerican biodiversity hotspot and it has many jungles, wildlife reserves, a large variety of different species of flora and fauna and the largest cave system in Central America. Some species of Belize’s flora and fauna include the black orchid, the mahogany tree, the toucan and tapirs.” (https://www.travelbelize.org/facts-about-belize) English is one of Canada’s two official languages, spoken by about 19 million people, or 57 percent of the population. 80 percent of canada speak english.

The island was already inhabited by the Carib Indians, who had migrated from the South American mainland, killing or enslaving the peaceful Arawaks who were already inhabitants there. The Amerindians called their island Camerhogue, but Columbus renamed it Concepción. However, passing Spanish sailors found its lush green hills so evocative of Andalusia that they rejected this name in favor of Granadaa.Over the centuries, although control of the island passed from France to Britain, the name endured with just the slightest of alterations, changing from “Granada” to “La Grenade” to “Grenada”.Taexali is a tribe they lived by the northernmost frontier of the Roman Empire and the Antonine Wall. They have farms but they are not protected and they live in the hamlets were there are mountains and were they live in small towns or villages.

The Romans used the word Caledones to describe both a single tribe who lived in the Great Glen between Fort William. They called all the tribes living in the north Caledonians. They include the Cornovii who lived in Caithness, and the Caereni who lived in the far west of the Highlands, and the Carnonacae in the Western Highlands. Durotriges is centred in Dorset, some people found in southern parts of Wiltshire and Somerset and western Dorset. The Durotriges seem to have been a loosely knit confederation of smaller tribal groups at the time of the Roman conquest. A cool thing about the Durotriges was that they still occupied hillforts. Best known of these Durotrigean hillforts is that of Maiden Castle near Dorchester, and others like South Cadbury Castle and Hod Hill.A major trading centre existed at Hengistbury Head from which cross-channel trade with Gaul was controlled. This may be the settlement called Dunium by Ptolemy which was located on the border between the Durotiges and Atrebates. Cross channel trade was not an important source of goods for the Durotriges, who preferred local products.(http://www.bbc.co.uk/history/ancient/british_prehistory/iron_01.shtml#two) “They have led the way in science, literature and industry. The influence and power of Great Britain began to erode in the first half of the 20th Century with 2 world wars. This had its consequences in the gradual breakup of the Empire during the second half of the century since when, the UK has re modelled itself into a leading, wealthy European nation. The UK is one of the five permanent members of the UN Security Council which was created on 24th October 1945 and a founding member of NATO and the commonwealth. The UK takes a global stance in foreign policy.Until June 2016, the UK played an active part in the European Parliament after joining in 1973 although they chose not to enter into the Economic and Monetary Union. Following a national referendum on June 23rd 2016, the UK narrowly voted to leave the EU (known as Brexit) although this will not be complete for some years.  It is largely thought the vote to leave was driven by perceived ‘bureaucracy’ in Brussels, the centre of the European Parliament and concerns regarding immigration. English is the main language spoken by approximately 98% of the population in the UK with numerous dialects. Accents can vary tremendously from south to north, even occasionally confusing Brits themselves. There are some regional language speakers including Scottish Gaelic, Irish Gaelic and Welsh. The latter is one of the most widely spoken regional languages.As a multi-national country, the UK has a number of other languages spoken across the country. The second most spoken, non-native language in the UK is Polish. The next commonly spoken languages come from India and Pakistan: Punjabi, Bengali and Gujarati. These are followed by Arabic, Chinese, Portuguese and French.”(https://www.commisceo-global.com/country-guides/uk-guide ) Adding to the greed is the laziness – or, as linguists call it, “economy of effort”. Sounds tend to change to save effort for either the speaker (dropping sounds out) or the listener (making sounds more distinct). Under Scandinavian and French influence, we tossed out troublesome bits of the complex Old English inflections, so a word like hopian got whittled down to hope, and over time, the e on the end stopped being said. In more recent centuries, we have often kept the spelling when sounds wear down: “vittle” is still written as victual. We simplified some sound combinations – “kn” became “n” and “wr” became “r.” We also stopped using – but not writing – some sounds altogether: the “kh” sound we spelled gh got changed to “f” as in laughter or just dropped, as in daughter. Sometimes sounds just change capriciously. The most significant instance of this in English was the Great Vowel Shift. From the 1400s to about 1700, for reasons that remain unclear, our long vowels all shifted in our mouths like cream swirling slowly in a cup of tea. Before it, see rhymed with “eh”; boot was said like “boat”; and out sounded like “oot.” But when the sounds shifted, the spelling stayed behind. Tongues and ears aren’t the only lazy things. Scribes and typesetters can be, too. If you bring over scribes from France or typesetters from the Netherlands and Belgium, where the first presses in Britain came from, they will tend to the standards they’re used to. The French scribes, with their Latin influence, didn’t see why we would write cwen when obviously what they heard should be spelled something like queen. The Dutch typesetters felt that gost was missing something, so they slipped in an h to make ghost.” (http://www.bbc.com/culture/story/20150605-your-language-is-sinful )
