WEEK 10, part C, MIAMI, MIAMI. MIAMI

      
The men from the north, the east,
 the south,
...

 To start with, I guide you to a Blog Post entitled
“Miami, Miami, Miami.  

This post starts with two men arguing about language, then another man, a judge, comes in with his opinion.
Some of the real problem with using language for evidence is that a person, who may have learned Old Swedish, believes that he is the authority on Old Norse.  

While a second person, who has learned no Norse at all, but believes that a man, who did speak a dialect of Old Norse and who copiled word lists from 18 translators, who compiled the word lists and definitions from 25 tribes is the most reliable authority of the Norse language in America.
Both of the guys appear to believe the spelling they chose to use is “punched in stone”--The spellings cannot be changed.

  Yet letters, which were recorded centuries ago, represent only the attempt of a listener trying to use his phonetic skills to record the dynamic sounds of puffs of air.  Both guys may NOT know how to define puffs of air made four centuries ago.  
I would appreciate your comments.  Are Miami (Ohio) and Miami (Florida) representing different cultures or similar  cultures at different times and places?
The Miami in Oklahoma IS related to the Miami in Ohio because, in the 19th century, the invaders, who spoke English, drove the Americans, who spoke Norse, to Oklahoma.
The Peoria tribe in Oklahoma are descended from the Illinois, the pure people, but the Protestant invaders forbade the Catholic Americans from ever again using ILLINOIS for a tribal name.
I first witnessed Christianity in action when I went to Oklahoma Powwows.  
“A rose by any other name is STILL a ROSE.”  

Catholic behavior in any other place, is still Christian behavior.
