The languages are pretty interesting too. Look at the US and Canada. Our accents are so different yet for the most part, our English speaking ancestors came from the UK and Ireland. We sound nothing like them. Canadian accents, Southern Accents, Boston Accents (I have a deep one), NY City accents... how did that happen?
I have older cousins in Newfoundland who are very hard to understand. When I met one of my Grandmother's elderly cousin I could not understand him at all. AT ALL! I even told him...
"No disrespect Uncle... but I cannot understand a word you are saying."
My cousin had to translate!
