Thoughts on language
English is a beautiful and complex language. Its Anglo-Saxon roots have been enriched with Norman French influences. Early speakers of modern English who saw Latin and Greek language and literature as the basis of all civilization added rules that provide precision, as well as vocabulary. And the reach and offspring of English-speaking empires have further changed and molded it.
The result is an exuberant language that provides a surprising amount of subtlety and precision when it’s used properly
