Agreed; my understanding is that phlebotomy has undergone a renaissance. I believe that we now recognize that it has a stimulating effect on the immune system.

@LauriPietarinen - You are not contradicting wikipedia; FDB meant to convey irony. The truth is that questions that wikipedia answers are out of scope for H:SE (see How to Ask). I'm want to thank you for asking the question and I'm going to edit the question in the hope of re-opening it.

It is entirely possible to speak with a heavy accent and still have the fluency of a native speaker. (Henry Kissinger comes to mind). Prior to the modern era is was also possible to be a fluent writer and lack spelling (D'israeli comes to mind). Finally, with enough artillery, it is possible to succeed with minimal language skills.

comment Which gender had the words for social roles in ancient gaulish?
I don't understand the question; I assume that both men and women had words for social roles. Are you asking whether the nouns for these roles were masculine or feminine? Which ancient Celtic Languages? Welsh? Manx? How ancient? Most Irish nouns are masculine.
