G.H. - Lebanon said:
English as a global LanguageEnglish is truly a global language. What started as a West Germanic language that arose in the Anglo-Saxon kingdoms and spread by the English Empire and the united states has become the leading language of international discourse and is the third most natively spoken language. It is also widely learned as a second language. You hear it on the television spoken by politicians from all over the world. Wherever you travel, you see English signs and advertisements. Whenever you enter a hotel or restaurant in a foreign city, they will understand English and there will be an English menu. 375 million people speak English as their first language making it probably the third largest language by number of native speakers. It is the probably the most commonly spoken language when combining native and non-native speakers. Some people also suggest that there are more non-native than native speakers. English is the primary language for 35 countries and although not the most spoken language, it is the official language of 37 countries. Although it is not the official language in most countries, it is the language that is most often taught as a foreign language. It is the official language of the United Nations and the International Olympic Committee and the official language for aerial and maritime communications. In Europe it is the language that is most often studied as a foreign language and is considered as the most useful foreign language. Books, magazines and newspapers written in English can be found all over the world and it is the language that is mostly used in science. With the spread of American culture has come the spread of the English language. Think Hollywood, fast food and clothing chains among many commercial products exported from the US. Because of this global spread and contact with other languages, it has transformed and changed into many dialects, creole languages and pidgin. There are also many words in English that are used to describe forms of particular non-English languages that contain a very high proportion of English words. Simple words such as ?hello? are used more often around the world than native words and are actually beginning to replace the native words. This is one of the drawbacks that are linked to the rapid globalisation of the English Language. Sadly, the growth of the English language has attributed to the death of other smaller languages as people have shifted their preferences. Many other languages are in danger of disappearing as people find it more convenient to speak English. For world literature the dominance of English is also bad news. If English were to totally dominate world publishing, very few translations apart from English to other languages would be viable commercially. As a result, only publications in English will have the chance of reaching a world audience and those who wish to reach a world audience will have to write in English. World literature will eventually all be written in English and may cause gifted foreign literary writers to lose their incentive to invest in personal skills. This may cause the world pool of talent to dry up.
