A controversial topic on language

Postby ksl » Sat, 16 Apr 2011 2:33 am

The authors say cultural evolution, not the brain, drives language development! Oh no not genetics :lol: what's the PM going to think in the UK?. As the language doesn't appear to be improving much, quite the opposite in some areas of retard cycles :lol: Maybe they need to import educated talent into the shires for better breeding opportunities :oops:

Nout like a bit of rough and tumble

English pushed out other languages in the US like German simply because of its structure and adaptability. There's a well-known book that's worth reading about this: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Adventure-Engli ... 340829931/
