Geographic determinism and linguistics XYAmazon 04/08/09, 17:09
Are people who live mostly on islands more likely to be picky about whether you're 'in Place' or 'on Place'
or are Danes just more likely to be pedantic enough to get into an argument over where Iceland falls in the
'in/on' continuum because of their school system?
(the prepositions at hand are really i and på as in: 'i island' or 'på island.' Is Iceland (island in Danish) large
enough to get i? Also I think (correct me if I'm wrong) that you say 'på jylland' even though jylland is a
peninsula and not an island)
