Globish, my ass [updated]

Language Log savages the write-up on "Globish" so that I don't have to. Although I still want to.

I did find it adorable that the guy made up the word "Globish", thereby redefining his terms such that English magically becomes less popular worldwide than French. Talk about an inferiority complex.

One good thing that did come of it all was that I found the Bible in (Ogden's) Basic English. "My God, my God, why are you turned away from me?"

Special bonus savaging: Graphic designers meet Chinese characters, pain ensues.

Popularity factor: 0
