Things you learn while invigilating an exam

Mosul in Iraq is called "Nineveh" in Syriac and Kurdish. Because, you know, it is.

  1. That's what Wikipedia says:

    "Mosul (Arabic: الموصل‎ al-Mawṣil; North Mesopotamian Arabic: el-Mōṣul; Syriac: ܢܝܢܘܐ Nînwe; Kurdish: Mûsil/Nînewe; Turkish: Musul),"

    Is that actually wrong?
