    English is a living language vs something like French, which is not. Now that their empire is downsized and threatening to grow smaller once Scotland gets its way, they need to accept that theirs is not the only way.

    Regardless, most of their accents still sound infinitely more intelligent than all of ours.

    Thanks for the link on the Americanization of English. 😉 Reading the Potter stories to my son was a wonderful experience except for the constant kerplunking of adverbs. Not sure if the adverbs become more infrequent after two or three books or if I trained myself to skip them unconsciously. (Well, not all adverbs are superfluous.)
