comment Split infinitives—did Old English have them?
It's a comment, not an answer. Since to is a separate word and not part of an infinitive verb form, it doesn't make sense to call these "split infinitives". But if my comments need to be answers, then I'll just point out that "split infinitives" arose in Middle English, not Old English.

comment What word describes languages that are written left-to-right, top-to-bottom?
Usually romanization refers to the transcription of spoken language into the Roman alphabet rather than transliteration of another writing system, although both are possible. For example, Hepburn romanization is based on sound rather than reproducing kana spelling.

comment Therefore vs. wherefore
Or, to use Google Books Ngram Viewer another way, we can look at the ratio of therefore to wherefore from 1950-2000. We find that the ratio is about 300:1. (As an aside, you should be careful using data outside 1800-2000 in their Ngram Viewer. That range is what Google refers to as the "most carefully curated of the datasets", and the data past 2000 isn't directly comparable to the data before 2000.)
