We here at Speculative Grammarian like to think of ourselves as healthy linguists, undertaking a great number of strenuous linguist activities, such as typing, pacing back and forth waiting for an email for that much-
Research by Paul E. Glot and Sue Cond-
They go on to hit out at the English language, “From our research, we in fact discovered that speakers of English nowadays have inherited a less healthy language, so that English speakers haven’t got a rich palate of words to digest anymore. Losing a plethora of rich words like overmorrow, defenestrate, betwixt, meseems, and sweven has meant English has lost much of the nutritious quality it once had and quality has itself become quantity, with plenty of words going around but sadly not the right sort of words.”
So, the next time you’re considering tucking into some of your favourite English words, take a step back and chew on some spicy Spanish sentences, consume some fresh French phrases, and devour some delicious Danish declaratives!
And so, we’ll all be able to enjoy the benefits of bilingualism, and live for a better tomorrow.
