I am not an English native and English is not my mother tongue, but still I support English fully because,
Usually I am all for diversity but not when it comes to interfaces. The fewer types of interfaces there are, the better, the communication will be. And human language is an interface.
Movable printing type machines were invented in the east in China and Korea. However the east could never realize the full potential of these machines because of their complicated scripts. Indian languages have a minimum of 300 distinct characters each. To typeset a single page you need several hundred copies of each distinct letter on a page. To typeset in Indian language using non-computerized primitive typesetting machines will require 300x100 = 30000 letter pieces. For Chinese and Korean it would be even more. Whereas with English only 26x100 = 2600 letter pieces are needed to typeset a page.
For a scientific revolution to happen a lot of ideas have to be worked on by a lot of people and the ideas must be shared quickly and easily. Printing machines catalyze such information sharing. Because it was so easy to typeset an English page, such catalyzation happened first in England and hence the industrial revolution happened first in England. This shows the importance of language reform.
I tried to teach my niece and nephew the Tamil alphabet wich has more than 300 distinct letters. After two years of trying to teach them Tamil letters (just letters not words or sentences) they are barely able to read and write Tamil even though they speak Tamil at home and school. Whereas they could recognize the entire English alphabet before they learned to speak. Similarly with Hindi. They can barely read and write hindi after many years of learning it. Even though English and Hindi are direct descendants of Sanskrit, one is super easy to learn whereas the other is too complicated to learn easily. This is why language must be simplified, because it will make the spread of information quicker.
If you find any grammatical or spelling errors in my articles, don't hesitate to point them out in the feedback, I will be glad to correct them. Be as specific as possible.
Though English is the simplest language, we could make it more simpler.
Verb unchanging with pronoun
In English, we write: I love, you love, he loves, she loves, they love, we love. In German: Ich liebe, du liebst, er liebt, wir lieben, ihr liebt. We can see that in English it is simpler with only two forms 'love' and 'loves' whereas in German we have 'liebe', 'liebst', 'liebt', 'lieben'. Twice the number of words to learn. Why do we need even two? Why can't we simply use love for he love she love also? Then we will have only one word to learn instead of two.
Dropping capital letters
Though I am a capitalist, I find it strange that English and other European languages has two forms of the same letters, upper and lower case. No Indian language has double case. There is no upper and lower case in Tamil. It would blow up the number of characters from 300 to 600 doubling the complexity. so to simplify english even further we could write only in lower case. that would halve the number of letters to be learned. we also will not have to learn silly capitalization rules.
