As for his tactics working, I think not, there are many other fish in the topix sea other than him, I spend perhaps a faction of one percent of my time on his inanity. If he wants to waste his time that’s fine, me, I think it’s quite fun.

Kind of interesting article here, it say's America owns English by might rather than right, because the volume of American English used in the world. it goes on to say.
Scholars disagree when trying to pinpoint the moment when American English stepped on the head of its British mother claimed supremacy.
It seems there was an argument here I never knew existed, But at any rate the above quote^ blows Charles's Idea ...right out the water..lol RIP Charles... America owns English!
But it's all so much BS we all know nobody can really own a dialect.

I’m not sure the majority of Britains would claim language supremacy, although there are some right wingers who still dream for the old days of British Empire. And some holiday morons who think that shouting the English words loud enough to some poor bemused Spaniard or Greek will make them understood. I must admit though that I tend to see more Americans using this inane method of communication than I do English, perhaps that’s just the places I visit appeal more to American tourists.

Although English was used in the British Empire it was French that was the de facto international language prior to the end of WW2 and was used in all diplomatic areas and most international commercial transactions.

The rise of the US on the world scene since WW2 has changed all that,

So yes in terms of speakers per nation and the world diplomatic and economic stage, the US has more right to modern English than the English do.

I never said British was a language, you implied that I did therefore it is you who is lying.

British is a nationality.

The English language originate all over the world, it became the English language in England but that is far from your silly idea that it originated here.

<quoted text> From your comments, you are not English.
I am British, born in England, the family have been born in England for 6 generations but are originally of Scottish decent, so try telling you stupidity to Somerset house, HMRC, the DVLA and the passport office, I really don’t think they would believe you.

What the hell did you expect me to do? Accept your stupid ignorance and agree that all new born babies are born with the ability to speak English naturally and have to learn the language of their native country. Do you really think I am as thick as the great god charlie idiot?

<quoted text> Why are the Scots fighting for their freedom, if Britain is a nation?
It’s not ALL the Scots, as to how many are actually aiming to an independent Scotland, well that’s the whole idea of a referendum

Wait and see.

Whatever the outcome it will be a democratic vote of those people effected and will have nothing to do you your stupidity

The English language is a language. English black pudding is not a language, Red phone boxes are quintessentially English but not a language, Paddington bear and royal crown derby pottery are English but not a language

Please note that the English language did not originate in England but evolved out of various languages

<quoted text> Yes, a nation based on politics, a true nation do not have an international boundaries, they don't fight or clamour for their independence, etc.
Ahh so you now agree that Britain is a nation at last. Thank you.

This is of course why, alongside the word “nationality” on my birth certificate, driving licence and passport is the word BRITISH

However for you edification a nation is defined as “a large body of people united by common descent, history, culture, or language, inhabiting a particular state or territory.”

Note, no mention of politics. And FYI, the UK is a democracy and so political freedom is a given.

Please advise why, besides a British government at Westminster, there is a Scottish government at Holyrood, a Welsh Assembly at Senedd and a Northern Irish Assembly at Stormont.

That don’t really sound a lot like you much hyped political unity to me.

Tell me about the American Revolution? Oh you can’t because it screws up you mouthing garbage and you probably know absolutely nothing about it any way

And still the English language is evolving…

I notice you did not spell the word truth with a capital T to distinguish the christian version of truth from the real meaning of the word…

Right so although there is absolutely no evidence of any gods then the abrahamic god is Truth

Despite the fact that DNA totally disproves the adam and eve story then the we should ignore the science and believe in the bronze age babble Truth

Despite the fact that there is no evidence of a world flood.
That the ark described in the babble is impossible to build as described even with todays technology.
That DNA (that old bugbear again) proves the godly genocide to be impossible.
That the ark as described cannot possibly hold 20 million species for over a year.
That feeding 20 million species for over a year requires such considerable space for the food than could possibly be available in the ark

Despite the fact that there is no evidence that jesus lived as described in the babble and there is no evidence that someone of that name was even born to Mary

Despite all that we all should fall over and worship bronze age idiocy?

OK, you convinced me, where do I sign up….

No one is disputing that, you jackass. You have claimed England has ownership of the language. The is a distinct difference between origination and ownership. A simple concept that a simpleton like you cannot understand.

You need to sue the ass off whoever taught you English.
