    Default No Such Thing as STANDARD ENGLISH

    The British Council would have us all believe that British English is THE standard English to be used as the international language of commerce.

    Yet, every country that adopts English as its official or unofficial L2 develops its own variation.

    "Standard English" is the Colonial linguistic Imperialism of the British Council.

    I don't know who or what the British Council is, nor do I care much, but they are not the owners of the term "Standard English" either.
    Are you wanting a discussion, or just posting propaganda?

    Hey mate -

    Who coined the phrase Standard English?

    Who claims that English is GB's greatest export ever?

    Who is the driving force behind English as the international language of commerce?

    Let's discuss.

    Um ... the British imperialist dogs?

    Er ... the evil limey Queen-loving Brits?

    Who is the driving force behind English as the international language of commerce?
    Um, the Jews? No, wait ... The capitalist running dogs of British neo-imperialism in conspiracy with the Great Satan USA, and other post-colonial slave-dog Anglo-worshipping states like Canada and Australia?


    Let's discuss.
    OK.
