Essay about Chinese language taking over English

Graddol states that China's economy is growing and it is already second in the world. In fact, it has become the largest exporter and first in energy consumption. In addition, China will presumably be the largest manufacturer soon. However, he questions whether Chinese language grows at the same pace as its economy. Graddol's teaching in Hong Kong starts with a lecture called "World Englishes". He notes that he wrote his book "The Future of English" in 1997, same year when China got Hong Kong back from Britain. Graddol reminds the students, how many things wasn't happened then: euro was not put in use, even Windows 98 was not ready. He had been in Hong Kong before that, actually, making a TV-programme about global English for BBC, which showed that Putonghua, the native language, had become more important. Nevertheless, that programme was never completed, because no one thought it was interesting enough. Then Graddol writes about importance of language and how it should be assessed. He discusses whether it should be the number of speakers, their social status or even wealth and whether the number of speakers of Putonghua should include only native speakers, which is 1.3 billion people, or should they take other dialects into consideration too. Furthermore, Graddol brings an example from Guangzhou and their local language Cantonese which is endangered by Putonghua. Many people protest about using too much Putonghua, but the students believe that in Hong Kong, the problem is mostly in official signs wrote in Putonghua. He also points out that one of his students said that Putonghua is gaining power instead of English. The writer then highligh...

English language history

The new conquerors brought with them a kind of French and there was a period where the lower classes spoke English and the upper classes spoke French. In the 14th century English became dominant in Britain again, but with many French words added. Modern English Early Modern English (1500-1800) Towards the end of Middle English the change in pronunciation started, with vowels being pronounced shorter and shorter. From the 16th century the British had contact with many peoples from around the world and many new words and phrases entered the language . In 1604 the first English dictionary was published. Late Modern English (1800-Present) The main difference between Early Modern English and Late Modern English is vocabulary. Late Modern English has many more words because the Industrial Revolution and technology created...

Bilingualism

Bilingualism The two most important languages on planet Earth these days are English ­ the language of international commerce and of the media ­ and Chinese, which is spoken by one of every six humans. The second tier of importance includes Spanish and Arabic and French ­ for their wide use ­ and Japanese, from Japan's economic influence. The third tier of importance covers Portuguese (for Brasil), German, and Russian. The remaining languages are essentially regional or minor. Success in business in the global economy requires fluency in one or more of the languages in Tier One or Tier Two, no matter where you live.Business operations ­ reception, customer service, sales, websites, advertising ­ that entail use of one or more languages provide access to major additional segments of the global economy. Likewise, the executive or office worker or retail clerk with multi-fluency has...

To Protect or not Protect Minor Languages

For example Estonian is a minor language, because it has so little amount of speakers, just over a million comparing to German that has at least 100 million native speakers. Many minor languages have been mixed together or been developed from other languages. I think that the minor languages should be protected, because with languages come with a part of culture and if we terminate the variety of cultures that have developed throughout the evolution of mankind then the world would be boring. There would be no languages to learn, no foreign songs to sing and no joy of knowing that you can speak to a foreigner in his mother tongue. Also people are more friendly and open to you if they can speak freely in their mother language. But not protecting the minor languages can also be a good thing. As we know the world is globalising and the closest thing to a global language is English. Most of the internet and technology is in English, also lots of trading and business deals are written in English. Interesting is, that even in Estonia knowing and speaking English has come an expectation not a skill in the younger society, because in many jobs there is required to know a certain amount of English. In my opinion minor languages are the things that make small countries differ from other countries and that is something that people can be proud of. That is a major thing that brings nations closer together and makes people friendlier to each other. It is always nice to see Estonian speakers in foreign countries. It makes you feel safe and secure, when you know that in case of emergency, the people that speak the same language stick together, because that is an instinct of survival for the mankind and if we changed that we might lose all the years of hard work...

Society and culture of english-speaking countries

Nova Scotia Gaelic is still spoken in Nova Scotia, hundreds of years after the first Scots settlement was founded.21st century Scots Canadians celebrate their Scots origins and share their traditions with people from around the world.

Keelefilosoofia raamat

But there are things that are in fact false, yet might have been true. Things might have gone otherwise; the world could have been different from the way it is. Someone other than Brown might have succeeded Tony Blair as Prime Minister, I might have married a different person (which would have been a mistake), and I know I could have finished writing this book sooner if I had had a private secretary and a retinue of servants including a personal chef and a couple of hired killers. Thus there are a number of ways the world might have been. To put it slightly more fancifully, there are alternative worlds. Different worlds, worlds that could have been ours, but that are only possible and not actual. Think of an array of possible universes, corresponding to the infinitely many ways in which things, very broadly speaking, might have gone. All these possible worlds represent nonactual global possibilities. Now (obviously) a sentence's truth--even when we hold the sentence's meaning fixed--depends on which world we are considering. "Brown is Prime Minister" is true in the actual world but, since Brown need not have been Prime Minister, there are countless worlds in which "Brown is Prime Minister" is false: in those worlds, Brown did not succeed Tony Blair, or never went into politics, or never even existed. And in some other worlds, someone else is Prime Minister--David Cameron, P. F. Strawson, me, Madonna, or Daffy Duck. In still others, there is no such office as Prime Minister, or not even a Britain; and so on and so forth. So a given sentence or proposition varies its truth-value from world to world. (For now, let us take all this talk of "alternate worlds" intuitively, as a met- aphor or picture, a heuristic for seeing what Kripke is getting at. Considered as serious metaphysics, it raises many controvers...

For example the returning of the assets and industrial equipment evacuated to Russia during the First World War, the right to return home for all Estonians living in Russia. Still, about 38 000 Estonians managed to leave Russia after the signing of the treaty. The foundation for Estonian independence lay in the people's strong desire for self- determination and their own state, the more so that the necessary domestic policy preconditions were already there. An additional plus was the exceptionally favourable international situation that did not enable either of the historical great powers in the Baltic Sea region to retain their hold in the Baltic countries -- Russia and Germany, both weakened by the war and revolution. The Entente countries, which emerged victorious from the Great War, were keen to reduce Germany's power in the global strategic sense -- for them, the Republic of Estonia was also a link in the anti-bolshevik struggle. For the first time since the 13th century, the Estonians achieved complete independence and for the first time in history they now had their own statehood. In the course of half a century, the class-based country people had turned into a socially differentiated nation. 17 | P a g e Our opinion We can learn from history how past generations thought and acted, how they responded to the demands of their time and how they solved their problems. We can learn by analogy, not by example, for our circumstances will always be different than theirs were. The main thing history can teach us is that human actions have consequences and that certain choices, once made and cannot be undone. They foreclose the possibility of making other choices and they...

Canada

Only deciduous trees can grow there since the soil is acidic. Some typical animals are brown bears, foxes, geese, lynxes and moose. Prairies are temperate grassland. They consist of plains of grass that are hot in the summer and cold in the winter. Prairies are made by fires. The soil is rich and the precipitation is medium. The area has very few trees or shrubs so it is very windy. Typical animals are bobcats, antelopes, snakes, rodents, rabbits, badgers, bisons. Prairies are located in Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba. Those regions are called the ,,Bread-basket of Canada" because of the wheat and other grains they get from there. 9. Population Although Canada's population is growing slowly, their growth rate is higher than that in most industrialized countries. Their population growth is concentrated in areas with considerable environmental stresses, particularly around Toronto and Vancouver. Global population growth has global impacts that are felt in Canada, including pressures on the environment and demand for products that we export. The Aboriginal population of Canada is a diverse population with distinct cultures, languages, religious beliefs and political systems. There are many ways of defining the Aboriginal population, which can result in different estimates of its size. There is no single or "correct" definition and the choice of a definition depends on the purpose for which it is to be used. The First nations are Indians, Metis and Inuits, but the term Indian is called inappropriate, so now they are called the Native peoples. There are also legal terms for them and it applies to a native person who is registered under the Indian Act and it means that they are entitled to free medical care, education and training. Some of them, whose ancestors signed treaties also receive a small amount of money. Metis ar...

Means of communication

23. Means of communication Introduction A few centuries ago people knew only a few kinds of communication. They could speak to each other, they could send their message from one place to another by smoke signals, they used mail. Later on, they also had some newspapers. The first expansion of media was when the radio and television were invented. The second and the biggest boom started in 1960s when the first communication satellite was launched into orbit. There are 4 main media: Newspapers, TV, Radio and the Internet. Today's people take this as an ordinary thing and we don't realise that we nearly can't live without it. Media are very important for us. They give us big amount of information, so big that we can't remember all that things. They help us to understand things and if you have lots of information you are able to make your own decisions. This is connected with e...

The UK

K Different Parts The United Kingdom is a short way of saying the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland. The UK is the political name for those countries which share a parliament in London. All of them were at one time independent kingdoms with their own monarch. Now they are all part of the same kingdom and share the same monarch. The UK consists of Northern Ireland, Scotland, England and Wales. The peoples of these countries are British subjects; they hold British passports and therefore their nationality is British. The british Isles is the geographical name for all the islands off the west coast of Europe. These islands also include The Republic of Ireland, which is politically independent of the Britsh government. Many people refer to the inhabitants of the British isles as 'the English', but England is only one of the countries. The other countries are Scotla...

It is one of the most famous prehistoric sites in the world and is composed of earthworks surrounding a circular setting of large standing stones. The surrounding circular, earth bank and ditch, have been dated to about 3100 BC. Stonehenge was produced by a culture with no written language . Many aspects of Stonehenge remain subject to debate. There is little or no direct evidence for the construction techniques used by the Stonehenge builders. *The Celts in Britain and their legacy ­ The Cets lived in Britain in The Iron Age. They were warring tribes who were battleful amongst themselves as well as inter-tribal war. They were not centrally governed. The Celts brought iron working, iron ploughs and metal swords, horses, wheels and chariots - all these things gave them an instant superiority over the native tribes. The Celts built a number...

Topic – Australia

Lakes Most of the lakes in Australia are filled with water after rains only. Lake Eyre is, on the rare occasions that it fills, the largest lake in Australia and is the lowest point in Australia, at approximately 15 m. The lake is located in the deserts of central Australia, in northern South Australia. Even in the dry season there is usually some water remaining in Lake Eyre, Rivers The Darling River is the longest river in Australia, flowing 2,739km from northern New South Wales to its confluence with the Murray River at Wentworth, New South Wales. (Some geographers treat the Darling and the lower Murray as a single river, 3,000km long. This is largely a matter of semantics). Today the Darling is in poor health, suffering from overuse of its waters, pollution from pesticide runoff and prolonged drought, possibly the result of manmade global warming. In some years it barely flows at all. The river has a high salt content and declining water quality Deserts Deserts of Australia cover a large portion of the land in Australia. Most of the deserts lie in the central and northwestern part of the country. The Great Victoria Desert is a barren, arid and sparsely populated desert ecoregion in southern Australia. It falls inside the states of South Australia and Western Australia and consists of many small sandhills, grasslands and salt lakes. It is over 700 kilometres (435 miles) wide (from west to east) and covers and area of 424,400 square kilometres. It is the biggest desert in Australia. There are also Great Sandy Desert, Gibson Desert, and Simpson Desert. 5. Climate Rainfall plays a very important part in the lives of the Australian people. People mostly live in the south and east part of the country. The climate in those parts is suitable for farming and ranch...

Other The Great Plains is the board expanse of prairie and steppe which lies east of the Rocky Mountains in the United States and Canada. Grand Canyon created by Colorado River cutting a channel over millions of years, is about 227 miles long, and attains a depth of more than a mile. Nearly two billion years of Earth's history has been exposed as the Colorado River and its tributaries cut through layer after of sediment as the Colorado Plateaus have uplifted. 5. Climate Due to its large size and wide range of geographic features, the United States contains examples of nearly every global climate. The climate is temperate in most areas, tropical in Hawaii and southern Florida, polar in Alaska, semiarid in the Great Plains west of the 100 th meridian, Mediterranean in coastal California and arid in the Great Basins. Its comparatively generous climate contributed (in part) to the country's rise as a world power, with infrequent severe drought in the major agricultural regions, a general lack of widespread flooding, and a mainly temperate climate that receives adequate precipitation. 6.

English history

The Irish Republican Army took on the British Empire at its height (1919-21) and British rule collapsed in Ireland as a result of the Irish War of Independence. This sparked Independence movements across the Empire and inspired other nations for Freedom. World War I Britain has proven itself on several occasions to be strong and powerful. It has created the reputation by being one of the world's largest industrial powers. The industrial revolution with WWI was that brought the British Empire to the peak of its expansion. Imperial contributions had strengthened the British war effort, and victory brought to country mandates over new territories, such as Palestine, Iraq, and some territories in Africa. World War I, known also as the First World War, Great War and War to End All Wars was a global military conflict. Over 15 million people were killed. It was one of the deadliest conflicts in human history. The proximate cause was the 28 June 1914 assassination of Franz Ferdinand of Austria by some Bosnian-Serb nationalist. The war soon spread worldwide. As the result, it was the end of four major imperial powers. The Treaty of Versailles which was signed at the end of WWI and it is often said that it eventually lead to the beginning of World War II in 1939. World War II In late 1938, Britain tried to avoid another world war by signing the Munich Pact. The pact gave Germany ,,permission" to invade Sudetenland in Czechoslovakia. In March 1939, Britain announced that it would be supportive to Poland when Germany would invade it, but German invaded anyway. Hitler and Stalin had secretely signed an agreement dividing up Poland between the two powers. On 3rd September 1939, when many people were a...
