Comments: Why is English so weirdly different from other languages?

I also wonder if anyone else requires a politically expedient slash of masculine/feminine pronouns?

Personally, I don't know no Spanish or Franch but I speak Eanglish real good and as I do, I usually don't substitute adverbs for conjunctions or end sentences with prepositions or adverbs but sometimes I do to let people know where I'm coming from, there.

Before you try to straighten out the language you must first straighten out the alphabet. There's at least 5 letters too many, maybe even 10.

For an explanation, I recommend "The History of English" podcast. Our history is embedded in our language like DNA.

I am conversational in Spanish and Tagalog. Both of those languages have their quirks.
