- The English language is reputed to be the pervasive language in the world.
I wouldn't call English a pervasive language. A perverse language, maybe. :wink:
Perhaps you mean to say that English is the dominant language of the world. However, I don't think that is quite right. Mandarin Chinese and Spanish have more speakers than English does. English is certainly a worldwide language, spoken from Singapore to Kenya to the UK to the USA. It certainly is an important language. Perhaps you could say that English is one of the world's most dominant languages, spoken all around the globe. (It's an official language in seven African countries.)
