I really love languages. Each of them has a history and peculiar quirks that are specific to it. So feel free to post any fun fact about any language (modern or ancient) to expand our trivia knowledge. Have at it!

I'll start:
Latin does not have any W's. For a long time it did not have J's or U's either. They simply used I's and V's instead. So they would spell the name "Jesus" "Iesvs."
English used to have a 2nd person personal pronoun. Instead of "you" to refer to multiple people and one person, many people would use the word "ye."
In southern America today, we use the word "y'all" instead of you or ye.
