Is English a Sadistic Language?

Hippopotomonstrosesquippedaliophobia is a fear of long words,

Borrowing from other languages, is all English affords;

From ‘anonymous’ in Greek,

To describing the ‘meek’;

Not, naught and knot

Aren’t enough to define the drought;

Misery loves company anywhere,

It’s schadenfraude everywhere!

Yet we yearn to be English-speaking,

Look down upon non-speakers, critiquing;

Heights of colonialism, you say?

A trap of universal unification, if I may!

  2. Have you ever considered about including a little bit
    more than just your articles? I mean, what you say is important and everything.
    But just imagine if you added some great
    graphics or video clips to give your posts more, “pop”!

    Your content is excellent but with images and videos,
    this website could definitely be one of the most beneficial in its niche.
    Awesome blog!
