Globish extra

Globish is the worldwide dialect of the third millennium. More than a lingua franca, the rapid adoption of "decaffeinated English", according to the man who coined the term "Globish", makes it the world's most widely spoken language.

Globish reminds me of another failed project called "Basic English" which failed, because native English speakers could not remember which words not to use :)

So it's time to move forward and adopt a neutral non-national language, taught universally in schools worldwide,in all nations. As a native English speaker, I would prefer Esperanto
