It’s easy to make fun of English for having lots of strange grammar exceptions and weird spellings, but it really isn’t that much worse than your average language.
Also, here’s a fun thought: America was named after the explorer Amerigo Vespucci. Which means there was a very real chance it could have been called “Vespuccica” instead.
アメリカ = America
イングランド = England
英語 = えいご = English
English Has Lots Of Exceptions
Yellow: So languages are just a country name followed by 語?
Blue: That’s the pattern.
Yellow: So then we speak アメリカ語?
Blue: You do know that we speak English not “American”, right?
Yellow: Maybe you do…
Yellow: Fine then. Does that mean that English is イングランド語
Blue: That’s a very logical guess. But it’s wrong.
Blue: English is actually 英語. It doesn’t follow the pattern 100%.
Yellow: So English has weird grammar rules even in other languages…
