The purity of the English language

And thank you Suw!

The purity of the English language.
“The problem with defending the purity of the English language is that
English is about as pure as a cribhouse whore. We don’t just borrow
words; on occasion, English has pursued other languages down alleyways
to beat them unconscious and rifle their pockets for new vocabulary.”

– James D. Nicoll

“English is the result of Norman men-at-arms attempting to pick up
Saxon barmaids and is no more legitimate than any of the other results.”

– H. Beam Piper
