English now the dominant EU language - Public Service Europe

English now the dominant EU language - Public Service Europe | TEFL & Ed Tech | Scoop.it

The European Parliament now has a dedicated telephone number for all those struggling with the English language's sometimes bizarre grammar and illogical spelling. Staffed by English-speakers from the assembly's Directorate-General for Translation, the helpline was run as a pilot project among linguists before being opened up last month to all and sundry. "There have been approximately 100 calls over the period since the start, with a significant increase in traffic after the full launch in June and we can expect the number of calls to rise as colleagues in the European Parliament seem to find this service very helpful," says spokesman Armin Wisdorff

In every word, a microhistory

In every word, a microhistory | TEFL & Ed Tech | Scoop.it

14-year-old Anamika Veeramani won [the US] 83rd National Spelling Bee on June 4 by correctly spelling the word stromuhr. It’s one of many English words in the contest that sounded decidedly unEnglish. Other words from this year’s contest: barukhzy (from a Pashto word that went through Russian before becoming English) , tanha (from a Sanskrit-derived Pali word), izar (originally Arabic, then went through Hindi before becoming English) and uitlander (from Afrikaans, which formed it from two Dutch words, plus a Latin-derived combining form). These are all English words…yes, English words, even if they’re spelled according the rules and pronunciation of other languages. There are many reasons for this mongrelization of English spelling [. . .]
