    I do. And I wonder if you're aware that "discourse" is not a synonym for "discussion"?

    Why is discourse defined twice on that page? The first one fits Wulhere's definition (communication, but not A communication), but the second definition fits yours (a discussion) :S Is it a British/American thing?

    At the Cambridge dictionary it is more clearcut:

    I thought they were looking for a name that means all Indo-Europeans?
