No, not what I know you were thinking.

Is it:
bog>swamp>marsh
swamp>bog>marsh
swamp>marsh>bog
or something else?
...and that's the bottom line because Mate de Vita said so.

I'd say a swamp is largest. Then a marsh, with the smallest (and potentially driest) as a bog. But that's my own personal experience, they are pretty much interchangeable.

You missed cloudy saying "policy" "memorable" and "spouting" were big words the other day.

That wasn't even me playing it up all that much, but now I'm beginning to question why I started dumbing down the way I communicate in the first place. It's starting to make me feel as though my thoughts are getting dumber as well.

Once you learn a language, all your thoughts are only as intelligent as can be expressed in the language.

Thanks a lot, English!

Well like all languages, english has evolved over a very long period of time but the main roots are indeed anglo saxon and norse.This period of English history dates from around the fourth century AD until the Norman invasion of 1066.
The Normans spoke French which is commonly referred to as a romance language and has a mainly latin root.So you will find quite a lot of english words with a latin root and a similar french equivalent.So english is a bit of a mongerel language in that respect!

Which means that, when you look at the Indo-European family tree of languages, Anglo-Frisian and French are cousins, and their redneck inbred baby is English.

This, and the ton of loanwords from every where under the sun explain why English is such a fantastic and fucked up language.

English mainly came about from the rich French-speaking royalty having their kids raised by Germanic-speaking peasantry, so the kids where bilingual, and then some.
I find curious parallels playing out before our eyes today with rich WASPs having their kids raised by Spanish-speaking immigrants from Latin America. Food for thought.

Except one interesting point in English is that the most basic concepts have stayed true to the Germanic roots, and the more marked in diction you get, the more you drift into Latinisms.

It's hard to see Spanish supplanting that, so maybe we'll collect more words, but I don't think English as we know it now is going to be replaced in that way. In past centuries children were raised by nannies that didn't speak English as a first language, but that didn't result in a widespread shift of our speaking tendencies.

If Spanish is going to become part of English, or really the other way around, that's likely to develop around commercial centers, but even that makes some ugly assumptions about those damned Mexicans wanting to do that work while decent white folk remain in the service industry.

Either way, there are more speakers of Mandarin than both English and Spanish combined and I don't see us stealing their words. Yet. (We probably should)

I find English to be a very interesting language simply for the vast number of influences it has had on it. And I know what you mean NatureJay, every day I spend on the internet makes me feel that little bit more stupid. I've taken up reading again in an attempt to reverse the trend (it's surprising, since I did I've noticed my spelling, once pretty damn good, latterly a bit more crap, pick up again). That was a tortuous parenthetic statement, wasn't it?
