Language and Who Owns It

Recently saw an article dealing with language. I've always noted that English is like a shark--it takes in everything that comes its way. Burritos yummy and now in the American English lexicon. The French it seems are none too pleased with all the "borrowings" English has made and is suing. Whether or not the French will follow through, the issues helps to highlight one of the reasons non-native speakers of English have a hard time learning its rules and vocabulary.

Just a thought on a Sunday afternoon.
