    It's just not the most expressive language.

    And on the day it happens, he will invent a new word for it that will involve 16 other words combined into one single run-on word.

    Meanwhile the British will call it Bantz and Germans will still be puzzled why everyone prefers English.



    Edit: A competent deflection by Xenosis was fun to watch.

    Lets get back to why your Island needs to be wiped out for the good of the world.

    It has the most scope for expression, that's a fact, not an opinion.

    English is the world's lingua franca because nobody wants to learn French or Latin.

    Actually, this is close to the truth. Because English contains both Latin and French words, in addition to Anglo-Saxons ones, it is capable of expressing nuances other languages are not capable of. Hence, it became the preferred language of the diplomats.

    That's why German-speaking Joe Appleby cannot get most of the jokes here. English is too complex for him.

    ... also, because he has autism.

    Anyone with a desire to see Northern Ireland prosper would stop electing DUP MPs so he should probably avoid that point.

    wow
    I am not arguing artistic merits, because that's entirely subjective. What i'm saying (as you i've already read, so i'm not sure why you're posting) is that English affords a greater range of expression due to the aforementioned: whether that's through synonyms or compound adjectives.
