Canada

Canada is a village; a country, yes, but originally- a village.

The languages originally spoken on north American grounds in general, and on Canadian grounds in particular were Iroquoian- a group of native American languages that are known for not having labial consonants (b,m,p..) at all! But that’s not the issue here.

In Iroquoian cana’da meant village, and Canadians- villagers.
