Open your computer. Check out WORD/TOOLS/Language and notice the number of languages (mine lists 31).  English offers three choices: UK (the “real” thing), Australian, and United States! Now do you see why we U.S.ers have such a rich language opportunity? Our English is the only one in the world that includes words from just about every other language. My Webster’s (English) Dictionary lists word source abbreviations for 152 languages. Farsi anyone?
