More deeply engaged societies can also undergo semantic and grammatical intermixing, cross-​ language fertilisation and appropriation, creative adaptation of words and concepts, and phonological transfer. It is rare for invasion and migration to not have an impact in spreading languages. The Arab tribes of the Fatimid and Abbasid Caliphates commemorated in Ibn Khaldun’s historical accounts are one example. A large example is the impact of Europe

and allegory compelling, even though I disagree with him about the cognition involved in making sense of allegory. The human mind’s ability to make sense of allegory— to correctly identify, say, the real-world satirical target of a short poem that does not mention the person by name—depends, according to Mark Turner, on three “principles of mind,” story, projection, and parable, that allow us to make sense not only of literature but also of reality, with “story” organizing our thinking, “projection” describing how “one story helps us make sense of another,” and

This is a resolutely disembodied riddle. On the one hand, the insistent negation tells us what we are not dealing with: having no eyes
