"People Who Know Nothing"I chortled heartily upon reading this letter sent in to free London newspaper, Metro:
"Language is an area where people who know nothing feel like they can make authoritative pronouncements. Remember, all languages change. If they didn't, we'd all still be speaking Old English"
Bryan Perry, Middlesex
For those of you who are "people who know nothing", Old English is a derived language.
Ah, my dear Mr Perry. Such exquisite irony.
