The English Language by Richard Lederer

English is the most widely spoken language in the history of the world. It is used in some way by at least one out of every seven human beings. Half of the world’s books are written in English. The majority of international telephone calls are made in English. English is the language of over 60% of the world radio programs. More than 70% of international mail is written and addressed in English. 80% of all computer text is stored in English. English has acquired the largest vocabulary of all the world’s languages, perhaps as many as 2 million words. English has generated one of the noblest bodies of literature in the annals of the human race.  Richard Lederer  http://verbivore.com/wordpress/
