- Which americanisms would you like to see erased from the english language?
That we enjoy Emglish as the lingua franca, allowing us to be lazy when it comes to learning other languages, simply shouting loudly and slowly at foreigners when we wish to be understood has been maintained by America. So when it comes to spoken English, they’re the boss of us. It’s painful for some to come to that realisation. But stopping the encroachment of Americanisms is as useful as King Canute telling to tide to go back out. Time to swap out those crappy old phrases we use all the time, give ourselves a reality check, wake up, smell the coffee and embrace it.Posted 3 years ago
