/ Job opportunities with Hungarian-Swedish-English languages in Poland?
language (not merely English) is no longer at the premium it once was
I agree 100%
Is this really desirable, even in the name of business??!
No, it isn't but that's life-in the global world :). I agree that every language should preserve its uniqueness. There are
things you are able to express in one language that can not be interpreted to another.
In general, I think the globalisation's influence on the language affects people who take part in the global communication. Many people in Hungary, for example,
don't speak any foreign language at all. It is mostly the younger generation that uses globish but I don't see it as something threatening everyday language, do you? I think globish is mainly limited to business context. One thing that does influence everyday language, however, is the media.
And in Sweden, for example, the Language Council (Språkrådet) issues a list of the most popular newly created Swedish words annually.
