No. You're in the wrong area. Chromatos might have an idea.


Maldivian? It sort of reminds me of Sinhalese (well, not entirely, but it has a sort of Dravidian feel to it), but it looks to have a lot of Arabic loans in it, so I'd guess it's whatever's spoken in the Maldives.

Re: Galois Theory Homework (Field Extensions)

Also, if we let f be irreducible over F(b) but take g reducible over F(a), there is a root of g in F(a), say, c. That's not right. g can be factored over F(a), but that doesn't mean there's roots. If f is irreducible over F(b), then [F(a, b) : F(b)] = [F(a) : F]. From that, and your tower result, w...
