to sum up

it's often been said that English grows by stealing words from other languages, but this isn't the half of it....

One author described it as mugging other languages and then rooting through their pockets for loose grammar...

English is the Borg of the Language world...you will be assimilated...we will add your syntax and participles to our own...your grammar will adapt to service the collective...

resistance is futile?

because of this, most English speakers who grow up with it aren't perfect with it ( hell, I'm english, from England, and I Know my command of the language isn't perfect....)

I think that, despite us all speaking in English, English is the first language of only about 10% of the people here.

English isn't just the Borg too. There are wordsmiths like myself who keep using old words in new ways, reverse-engineer words and then create new ones on top of all that... Where do you think Bluecheesium and Khrack came from?

All this works because of the wonderful thing called context to explain the terms. I doubt it would be very useful for spoken-lish, but in litera-rish, when you can pile loads of words in one situation, it's awesome a tool.

Tough choice about Nanoha's unexpected scenes if you ask me. though I have to admit I like that scene on Vivio. Oh, Satashi, you dirty-minded writer, you

Spoiler for Part 3:
It felt unexpected that we suddenly jump 50 years in the past without any notice. I was actually hoping we'd see more from older Vivio and those two girls (whose names I forgot ><). But seeing everything that actually happened to the Alpakura made more sense than Vivio's explanation in the previous chapter. The last line is the most intriguing and raised even more questions.

I think you mean chapter 4 in the title instead of 2. I noticed some typos along the way too, will be making a list later today.

Getting the Bag off the roof looked like a scene taken out of a video game. Poor Vivio at the end. She's really having it hard with Karil gone.

Hmm, IIRC Amy was still shown alive in the first StrikerS Sound Stage, during RF 6's visit back to Earth.

And The Machinator, please .
