    English is better, honestly. French may be beautiful, but it's not strong and regal like English. Thank God the Norman invasion happened, or else we'd still be talking like Germans. Truly, the best thing that ever happened for the English language was the year 1066. Now we're blessed with the best of both worlds.

        but it really is, for only one reason: adaptability. From 'O'-(zero; zed) to 'zen' (japanese to english) to the various conjunctions that name technology in the computer world and become ubiquitous buzzwords, English has it.

        We don't teach children to speak poetically, rhythmically, but we could.

          English is heavily oversimplified thanks to contact with Scandinavians, but despite the rigorous attempts to make it bland it still retains some of its old Tudor character. It has a very unique magic to it that most do not have eyes to see since it acquired the status of universal tongue without also acquiring great prestige as a Lingua Franca typically does.

          >got absolutely BTFO'd when it came to pronunciation, so now he's going after the orthography
          Predictable, or should I say... prévisible. In all seriousness, French orthography isn't nearly as fricked up as people make it out to be; it makes a lot more 'sens' than than English orthography, du moins. In any case, it's a whole lot more consistent, and you can get the hang of it within a week or two. People just like making mountains out of molehills, like how people freak out about having to learn a new alphabet and choose Latin over Greek even though they know Latin literature is pretty stale in comparison.

    English is a living language and, like all such, is continuously changing. We don't have an Academie francais; there's no simple, correct English, but only innumerable precedents of arguable validity. That's why French has a remarkably poor vocabulary compared with English.

    French is too much in the throat. It has a "sticky" quality too it. Almost gargly. French is to the Romance Languages as German is to the Teutonic. French romanticization has gone too far.

    Italian is the prime Romance language. Fluid and refined, and the first literary language to succeed Latin.

      German copied that gay French R after Hitler's way of speaking was considered unpopular and as a way to sound "sophisticated". German wasn't always disgusting.

        Many claim Arabic sounds scracthing to them. Most times I heard it; it sounded like they kept their mouths to much open and it sounded airy rather than scratchy. Then again, there’s so many dialects, it could just be certain ones that sound scratchy and coarse to people.

    French sounds like a plucky, snot-nosed kid trying to impress you with his performative manner of speaking. I say this in an affectionate way but the idea that it has some abnormally strong quality of romance or beauty is hard to take seriously. Pretty much every language can be beautiful, that is by far the most generic quality of language, and anyone exalting it as a virtue of a particular tongue makes himself look like a pseud. What makes the Romance languages stand out is how fun and playful they are, not beauty.
