I know what you’re thinking: A Chinese guy bemoaning the death of the English language? That’s crazy! But you’re a racist.
I do agree that language is a tool and that as long as it gets the job done, it doesn't really matter what it looks or sounds like; but I also agree that

Makes Dickens, one of the most talented and eloquent English writers ever, sound like a babbling, mentally disabled elephant.
