- English is now the lingua franca used internationally
for practical reasons in a world of global communications.
In that, it is useful and inescapable.
- We need to preserve the variety of languages for many reasons, namely cultural diversity and richness. I am myself, besides an archeologist, a poet, expressing in Portuguese, my mother language, the only one that I really dominate correctly.
Portuguese was 2000 years ago the result of the Latin, the language of the
Roman Empire that colonized us. English is now the language of the American Empire, that colonized the world after Europe.
What can we do about it?!
Is there any practical alternative solution?...
