FUTURE OF LANGUAGES

Today's communication is monopolized by English.  And the discriminating nature of English has made most of us voiceless.  We need to reassess our basic approach to language  ...

this is the major difference between liberal-art types and us techies.  we care about contents rather than the decoration around it.  and we are extremely allergic when reality is distorted by fancy words.  so, let it be a punishment to english and all native english speaking ethnic people, for all the lies that were told in english.  LET'S TRASH ENGLISH.

btw, the lies actually led to the trash of the chinese language(by propagandizing the greatest civilization ever existed as backward, so the language need to be modified.  some even wanted to make alphabetical).

my proposal actually only want to borrow english as a temporary computer language. at this point, i already see the potential of korean to replace english as such, once the commercial aspect of english is not so dominant.  


If you were such a techie as you claim, you would have recognized long ago from simple mathematical calculations that English is highly inefficient as far as 'international' languages are concerned.

You do have a point about Korean though. I don't know how easy the spoken language is, but I have read a fair bit on its script, and have even come across debates as to which is easier to learn between the Korean script and the Roman script, owing to the fact taht the Korean script is a planned one, systematically designed to be easy to learn. I'm surprised that a 'techie' like yourself could come up with nothing better than 'let's trash English'. From a self-proclaimed 'techie' I would have expected somthing a little more logical, like for example a systematic analysis of the structure of the language to identify why language x would be more technically suitable than language Y. After all, tehnical analysis is what techies are supposed to be good at.

So if you're such a techie, why is it that you never pointed out your reasons for Korean, such as the logical structure of its script compared to that of English, or the phoneticity of Koren compared to the ideosyncracies of English spelling?

Are you really a 'techie'?
