In favour of what? Some kind of a slant such as a new and improved esperanto?
If so, what a load of shite!
English is such a beautiful language; as it can somehow hold the historical timeline of a past, present, and future in the very use of its own diction. It readily adapts, and at the same time, casts off new expressions, from all those that the mother tongue moistens, whilst keeping such opine of the past and present at least well read by the future. At least so far,.................................
I am all for new expression, but if that means cutting off the great veins of the past, then, I guess we shall see you at the watering hole.
