Choosing the scientifically best language for international use?
This is not meant to be on a individual basis. I encourage everyone to explore their linguistic capabilities.
I have heard several people talking about the greatness of languages and the awe of human language capacity. I agree on language as a great phenomenon and it should be widely studied. However Im certain there are better languages than others (English is as a fact, better than Swedish). How do I know this? English has a more words, more descriptive language, and its spreading like a virus while the native swedish words are replaced progressively with better words such as "Cash, team, topic, share, community, etc.
I have tried to learn Polish and realize that Polish has one fierce enemy: vowels. The polish languages make little use of vowels and therefore it is much harder to learn how to pronounce words when the platform of vowels is to tell the reader which sound to put where. Clearly Polish is not the superior language in this sense.
Some languages such as Greek has been said to be the perfect start for learning all other languages. Mainly because its components matches those of a wide variety of sounds we humans can produce. Its a very rich, sounding, language Ive been told.
My question is, for the sake of uniting mankind, should we perhaps strive to narrow are languages to assert the best ones for international use? I mean English is dominating followed be Spanish. Perhaps we should learn Greek and then English? I am bit disturbed by the use of all nordic languages on warning sign and similar when traveling in northern region. Use english and no confusion will emerge.
