  2. Children speak how thier household speaks, how thier parents speak. So as long as I'm saying TH, my children (if I have any) will say TH, and their children will say TH, and so on. So I don't believe this garbage. As long as people are still saying TH today, then it should carry on well past 2066. This is a psychological warfare article to promote hatred towards foreigns, you know...that Trump American mentality? "Ain't no way in hell them Mexicans is gonna take my English away", "build a wall!". Or its foreshadowing an extinction of a race? Hitler? NAZIs? WW3???

    1. I agree about this being a psyop to encourage racism & immigrant hatred.

      MEDIA INFLUENCES change speech patterns -- NOT "Apu at the corner convenience store" (lol - Simpsons reference).

      The KARDASHIAN KLAN has altered a great many speech patterns with their crappy show.
      And RAP-SPEAK (which USED to be called "EBONICS") was introduced to young people EVERYWHERE via MTV.

      If it was true that "Mass Immigration" could alter the linguistics of their New Country --

      Then EVERYONE in the U.S. would've converted to Irish dialect in the late 1800's ...

      ... & before that, they would've been adopting Jewish accents after the arrival of a massive wave of European Jews in 1848 & 1849.

      Good catch on calling this out!

      This is the kind of sly, "scientific sounding" bullshit that slips in & tends to be accepted as fact ... because it provides "examples" & cites "experts". :D

  3. Th is the sound produced by someone with a lisp trying to produce an "Ss" sound.
    Like Cindy Brady, there was a Brady Bunch episode about it.

  4. In Greek, THeta is the eighth letter. 8 often symbolizes time. Could be a connection.

    "The Meaning of Numbers: The Number 8
    The number 8 in the Bible represents a new beginning, meaning a new order or creation, and man's true 'born again' event when he is resurrected from the dead into eternal life."

    1. "God saved eight people on the ark in order to have a new beginning for mankind after the flood. Since the meaning of four is derived from God's creation of everything, 8 (4 + 4) pictures the new creation after the flood.

      Eight is the number of Jesus, whose name in the Greek adds up to 888."

  5. I read the article & found it to be an example of promoting:

    "LINGUISTIC DARWINISM"

    They want to convince people that "The English Language" is DEVOLVING --

    -- BECAUSE of "IMMIGRATION".

    But in reality, they're spewing EUGENICS-BASED PROPAGANDA.

    Read it carefully -- & you'll note that:
    ALL they speak of is the LOSS OF SOUNDS --
    which THEY attribute to ADAPTATION & BLENDING --
    based solely on "IMMIGRANT INFLUENCES".

    According to THEIR BULLSHIT -- Linguistically NOTHING will be "ADDED" ...
    There will only be GREAT LOSSES.

    THAT -- I DO believe -- but it has NOTHING to do with Immigration.

    MEDIA -- is the REAL PLATFORM that is CONSTANTLY working to CHANGE speech patterns -- it's QUICK & EFFICIENT -- & being done DELIBERATELY.

    Just yesterday I noticed several shows where reporters & actors were "Dropping their T's" --
    Saying "Bi-en" ... instead of "Bi-TT-en" ... for example.
    "Ea-en" ... instead of EaTen ... etc.

    Consider how "SPOT ON" has now become commonplace in America -- due solely to people hearing it on TV.

    When the public hears these alterations -- especially several times in rapid succession -- they tend to adopt them ...
    because of the repetition & their subconscious tendency to "follow authority".

    Itcwas SCHOOL that TAUGHT them to follow such leads without ever thinking about it.

    "REALITY TV" is also destroying the English language at a rapid pace.
    KARDASHIANS ... JERSEY SHORE ... LOVE & HIP-HOP.
    No explanation is necessary about what THEY -- & others -- have done to our "speech".

    We also know that TEXT SPEAK has quickly changed our language -- (& that "Immigration" had NOTHING to do with THAT!).

    Yes -- Linguistically ... we ARE "DEVOLVING" ...
    But ONLY because it's part of the DELIBERATE "DUMBING DOWN" of the populace.
    And NOT because of "Immigration"!
