Pig Latin is more of a spoken language than a written language.

And what I mean by that is reading it is a real pain in the ass.

Suck it, Subby.

Immigrants can learn the farking language of their host country, NOT the other way around. If someone wants to move to an english speaking country, they should not expect us to learn their goddamn language. If I moved to Germany, I'd take the time to learn German.

And the whole politically correct thing with gender bias is a load of crap too. If I say "one man show" instead of "one person show" that doesn't make me sexist and only overly sensitive feminist nut jobs would believe it.

I'm glad I live in the US and not the UK but this shiat is happening over here too.

In my profession, I am surrounded by people that use Latin when it is entirely unecessary. It's annoying and pompous. There are Latin phrases or terms of art that have an idiomatic meaning to them, so sometimes you can't get around it. But I hate it when people use a Latin word when an English word will work fine, like "ergo." I know what it means. It means that you're a douchebag who wants to sound intelligent.

Yup, the natives got conquered...they can STFU. When "Americans" get conqured, we can STFU. Thats how conquering works. We've failed at that and really should correct it.

Since we're talking about Latin, maybe you idiots should read up on the history of the people who spoke it, and proceeded to conquer a HUGE portion of the ancient world. They didn't wipe out the cultures they conquered, the assimilated them. Why do you think there is Latin in all these languages to begin with?

You guys sound like the French and their language arrogance.

Eddie Izzard explains it (new window).

Also, there's a movie that kinda goes into that, but I can't remember the title, nor the actors, but I do remember a phrase "English is the biggest (or meanest) hound in the pound".

There are Native American speakers around? What language is this "Native American"? On my reservation 14 percent speak Dakota as their first language, but none speak "Native American".

Seriously, if you are going to talk about the American Indian tribes/nations, don't lump them in as all "native american", many tribes/nations hated their neighbors more than they hated the United States even in the middle of the Indian Wars. I'd be like calling Serbs/Croats/Albanians "Native Balkans".

The article is about not using Latin words in an English speaking country, replacing them with English phrases. Why all you morons are arguing whether immigrants should learn English or not is beyond me.

I was talking about the Romans not wiping out the languages of those they conquered. That's why we have things like French, Spanish and Italian. And why there are Latin and Latin-based words in English.

Oh and since the Americans decided to LEAVE England, shouldn't they make up their own language?

Why are you trying to turn me into a pedant? Native American languages are those languages which were spoken on the American continent since before European colonisation. The fact that they all had their political disputes before and after colonisation doesn't change the fact that they're "Native American".
