English is one of my first languages. Versed in the nuances of a few major native dialects of the language, I hope to learn and share my knowledge on this forum.


I majored in physics and music at Williams College, MA, and taught math at The Pennington School, NJ, for two years. Currently a PhD student in civil engineering at Johns Hopkins University, MD.

-1: More context would be certainly helpful. Are you writing an essay or report? Is this just merely out of curiosity? If so, what sparked the question?

Why does "swaths" not appear to be right? One could have "swaths of several populations." No other option comes to mind.
