>> English is hilarious

It must be the only language in the world that you can adequately
communicate with a vocabulary of less than 400 words including
grammatical forms of the same root.  What is so poetic about it is that
you can hide so much behind this poverty of words and grammar.
Something that you can not do with scientifically structured languages
like German or Greek.  It is very hard to take back the content of a
statement in such languages, while in English you can always
misinterpret your own statements when you've gone too far!
