Don’t forget the English language’s (if blurred and corrupted) Germanic – Anglo-Saxon - roots.


And don't you forget English's other roots - Latin, French, Greek, a touch of Norse, a bit of Arabic...English is a mutt well and truly. And let's not confuse English's origins with a relatively new entry into the English vocabulary - podcast.

English is also a transmutable beast. Words shift in meaning. They are appropriated, commandeered, misappropriated, hijacked. So it was, so it will be. It is a living language, not fixed. Not dead and pinned to the board for display. And so, whilst I might not agree with how words shift, I'd rather have a living, changing language than a dead and fixed one.
