    Of course the exchange took place in Latin since neither spoke the other’s language. But the real international language, it seems, is snot. Who knew?

    • JE says:

      I wonder how much their Latin sounded like the same language–English vowels had shifted pretty strongly away from the continental norm by then. But it would have been more effective than most of the alternatives (except, of course, snot).

      • peadarog says:

        Yes, English vowels had shifted, while Irish vowels were still pretty close to the continental norm. But maybe Rome still had some influence on Ireland and England wouldn’t have been that far from it. Would be interested to know…
