How the English Language Is Taking Over the Planet
No language in history has dominated the world quite like English does today. Is there any point in resisting?
A century of immigration has done little to dislodge the status of English in North America. If anything, its position is stronger than it was a hundred years ago.
Today it is estimated that the world loses a language every two weeks. Linguists have predicted that between 50 and 90% of the world’s 6,000 or so languages will go extinct in the coming century.
