Subject: Query: Seminole

A linguistic map of North America in Ruhlen's _Guide to the Languages of
the World, Vol 1: Classification_ (GLW-1) shows a white patch in southern
Florida, which the legend explains as "unclassified or undocumented".

After failing to retrieve the name for about three agonized days, I
finally asked my office-mate "What Indian tribe lives in Florida?" and
he said "Seminole". Right, that was it!

GLW-1 makes no mention whatsoever of Seminole. Katzner's _The Languages
of the World_ (mostly a sampler, kinda like the _Book of a Thousand
Tongues_ but less preachy and with better typography) says Seminole is
Muskogean.

So: (1) What are the unclassified, undocumented languages of South
Florida? (2) What is the original provenance of Seminole? (3) Why
isn't Seminole listed in Ruhlen? (4) Why didn't I just send this to Pam
Munro instead of boring you all to tears?
