nope, Timor Leste is the eastern half of the island (plus the little northern enclave in the west) which was the Portuguese colony; West Timor was part of the Dutch East Indies and hence was always part of Indonesia

also that map is mislabelled - it shows Indonesia as the eastern half and East Timor as the west

Ok so I'm in the process of enrolling TG in another school.

On the form that I'm filling out, there's a place where it asks which language is most often spoken in her home. There are six boxes to choose from. One of them says "English", not surprisingly. One of them says "French", and of course you all could have guessed that. The last one says "Other, please specify ___________".

Quiz for mindrompers: What do the other three boxes say? Take your best guess.

Good first guess.
Quote:
Innuit
We're a long way from any Inuit lands, so nope to Inuktitut/Inuinnaqtun/etc.
Quote:
Russian
Nope to Russian specifically, but yes one of the three is in the Indo-European language family.
Quote:
some other native pagan tongue
I wouldn't put it that way, but yes there's an indigenous language among them.

Gaelic is indeed one of them.

It's possibly a weird choice, given that very very few people here would actually tick that box. But I suppose it has a sort of special historical connection around here, with so many people being of Scottish ancestry. There are areas in this province where the signs on the roads are in both English and Gaelic. I've often heard it said that more people speak Gaelic in Nova Scotia than in Scotland, but that's far from true.

And that of course is Mi'qmaw, the language that really belongs here. It's now (I think) the 4th-most popular* language in NS.

[* "popular" not in the sense of how many people can speak it, but in the sense of how many people prefer it. ]

It turns out to be NS's 3rd-most popular* language. This was a surprise to me.

not to mention the drop off between number 1 and number 2.

English 92.46%
French 3.44%
Arabic 0.66%
Mi'qmaw 0.51%, or make that 0.52% if you add in some related languages

Yeah I had thought it was somewhat higher, before I looked it up.
Even in Qubec, the fraction of people whose first language is French is lower than I thought. (It's only about 81.4%, where I would have guessed over 90%.)

That was for the whole province. If I look at this city* alone, I get

English 89.6%
French 2.6%
Arabic 1.6% (most of the province's Arabic speakers are here in the city)
Mandarin 1.0%
Tagalog/Filipino 0.4%
...with Mi'qmaw waaaaaayyyy down the list, as those folks are mostly outside of the city.


[* well, "city" plus suburbs plus the substantial piece of countryside that got arbitrarily amalgamated with it into one big dumb municipality ]
