Is there something inherent in English that makes it the linguistic equivalent of the Borg, dominating and consuming other languages in its path? No, Not at all.

We take our voices for granted, but it's truly miraculous that we communicate complex thoughts simply by moving our mouths while exhaling.

The new Downton Abbey movie is a luscious treat for fans of the public-television period piece, but how accurate is the script when it comes to the vocabulary of the early 20th century?
