         I propose a scenario. We know that the Neighbors visited the Whorl 
when it came in-system, and delivered inhumi there. I don't recall if this 
plays into the Revolt Against Pas or not. Let us assume Pas was still 
alive. He'd've learned the Neighbor language from the Neighbors, and then 
Horn would have gotten it from his experiences on the Whorl (a Silk 
download, if that's what happened). Pas's family would have learned the 
Neighbor language at the same time, being all one big computer after all, 
and Seawrack from Mother from Echidna (?).
