This is precisely the kind of practical outcome we would expect to see if people were deriving fresh motivation and enthusiasm from a growing sense of new linguistic energies. I do not believe that ‘revolution’ is too strong a word for what has been taking place. A ‘revolution’ is any combination of events which produces a radical shift in consciousness or behaviour over a relatively short period of time, and this is what has happened. There are always continuities with the past, but these are outweighed by the emergence of a genuinely fresh perspective.

No other language is used so extensively – either numerically, or with such geographical reach. Even Chinese, found in eight different spoken languages, but unified by a common writing system, is known to ‘only’ some 1,100 million, and most of these are mother-tongue speakers in a few territories. Of course, we must not overstate the situation. If one in four of the world’s population speaks English, three out of four do not.

The English advertisements are not always more numerous in countries where English has no special status, but they are usually the most apparent.
