Speaking as someone who's one language is English, "Probably not".
"map" is really a Lisp/Scheme concept, and bears only a passing
relationship to English. (Huh, what do ya know, looking up "map"
on http://www.m-w.com/ reveals (in meaning 4) that "map" actually
means "FUNCTION". I have no idea why they capitalized it.)

One Will. One Dream. One Truth. One Destiny. One Love.
