The politics of English language

We have already debated a lot on the Language, it's use and abuse on the blogosphere. But did you know that Orwell, way back in 1945, already considered that the English language was in a bad way? Here's adding more fuel to the fire, again.

PS: Of course, I'm a primeval being, hence, agree with Orwell, almost completely.

However, during the 1600's Galileo and others mentioned this to be 'lingua pura' - The Pure Language ... because of the fact that this language did not have any control so any one could add his own bad habit / nuance

I totally agree with Orwell too. Gone are the days when the speech was refined and writing was articulate.

First time on your blog! Nice! And you're a Bangalorean! Me too. :-)
