Interesting quote about the English language...

Got this from my friend Jacob, although he mention who it could be attributed to:

“English doesn’t borrow from other languages. English follows other languages down dark alleys, knocks them over, and goes through their pockets for loose grammar.”



I used a modified version of that quote in GQ recently. Right here, in fact.

Odd how the world works, isn’t it? :smiley:

When I opened this thread, I had a feeling that that was what it would be . . .

Er, sorry, the OP should read that he didn’t attribute who said it.
