Speaking the One Language

Apart from China and India, right now it appears English is the most spoken language in the world. I reckon it's a good thing to have a common language we can all relate to and understand.

Those of us who speak English do so using different dialects. There are even different dialects in London. Middle classes in the UK speak in a different accent compared to working classes. Upper classes have their own way of speaking. Then there are the regional accents which give English a different flavour. For instance, people in Newcastle sound like they're speaking a different language. There are immigrants with their own take on the English language. Finally, there are countries like America, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa and many in the Commonwealth who speak English in their own accents.

The English language symbolises the One Love that we all are. How we express Love depends on our perspectives, i.e. our dialects and accents.

Is there a way we can all speak English with identical accents? Of course there is. Each country could have special schools where everyone is forced to attend elocution lessons so they can speak English the way the Queen does.

In my humble opinion, nothing would be more boring than having everyone speak English in the same way. Perhaps that's the game of life. The moment we all become the same, the game is over. I can't see that happening any time soon though.

In the meantime, let us all enjoy speaking English in a way that's comfortable for us.

Let us all enjoy being Love the way we know how.

With love,
