The city of Montreal is the venue for this year's Olympic Games. Montreal, Canada's largest city, is on the north bank of the St. Lawrence River and is the largest seaport in the world that is a considerable distance from the ocean -- 1000 miles from the open sea. All very interesting information -- but not quite what appeals to the logologist. Is there anything of interest to the logologist about Montreal? Indeed, yes. To the word enthusiast, the very name of the city itself is probably the most interesting thing about Montreal.
