Handy hints about ways to use language differences for world-building.
Blind Descent-- searching for the deepest caves on earth. Caves are weirder than you might think. You can get electrocuted if lightning strikes a stream on the surface.
The Expressiveness of the Body and the Divergence of Greek and Chinese Medicine-- more about cultural difference, not to mention historical change. I'd thought of Daoism as a thing, but of course, it has a history.
Any recommendations for non-fiction that's promising for world-building?
