How english will be in 200 years

Posted August 19th, 2013 at 09:40 PM by droomph

Yá, n onu 200 ósum Ée, d Énlislegets qna deren v. I qna v uré deren. Aníde, wa i qna sun lí, wa Werze qna sten fu, bä i qna soun smte lí ses ó alés. Yá, Énlis qna sun smte lí u freite Jame'en, adéne. Bä ti v nlu u Hípass. Wa ér Hípassze v?

Yes, I literally spent about a day thinking of that. If you can decode it, please do tell! Also the last question is really important to me (what do you think English, or any language in general, will be in 200 years)? I've already done this for Japanese and German. I thought it would be more relevant to share the English one with you guys :p

It means a lot to me to know what things are gonna be in the future, even though I know it won't affect me at all. Why would I want to know how my great-great-grandchildren (that is, if I have any) will talk? I'll be dead.

But it's something I do to keep my mind off of boring stuff like that last sentence in the previous paragraph.

:)

    And how do you reach that conclusion?

    Anyway, considering we can still read Shakespeare (though we might not get the jokes or understand some word usage) and his stuff is 400 years old, chances are we'll be able to read English 200 years from now. I expect the biggest changes will be the addition of a whole lot of words that don't exist yet, and a simplification of grammar (like all verbs will end in -ed -- no more "I thought" but "I thinked" instead).

    qna - "I am going to" > "I'm gonna" > "I'mma" > gna > qna

    v - "to have" > "I've, you've" used more and more as "to be" as I see

    and so on. It's just a guess though.

    But you have to remember, this is how people actually spoke (street talk), and if what we speak "formally" doesn't even let us understand former street talk, that means that 200 years should give us a lot more differences grammar-wise (just think, already we have "I m-gonna [verb]" which is so much different than "I will [verb]").
