LESSON Political and Social Divisions of Land

Discussion in 'CREATING WORLDS & SETTINGS' started by Revision, Jun 1, 2013.

  1. Land and geology can be divided in many ways. The following list will concentrate more on political and social divisions rather than landforms. Use and adapt as you see fit. Seeing as it is an extensive (and incomplete) list, there are no definitions provided. Please do your research on these terms. A thank you to Ozzie and Iskari for helping me with this.

  2. I'd like to do this, but I don't want to have to flip between this page and my dictionary; could you maybe add some definitions or simpler terms up there? :(
     
  3. I can get some definitions up after the move. Were there any you needed right away?
     
  4. Mostly just the ones that aren't common English like Emirate and Diocese and Palatinate
