How widespread is this feature?  English has it (e.g. "the land of Shin'ar",
another excerpt from the handy-dandy Babel text).  Does Cl. Latin use the
genitive this way (the Vulgate version of the verse in the Babel text
doesn't)?  The Romance languages?  Other Germanic languages?  Other I-E?
Non I-E?
