No other nation that I am aware of is facing the language challenge
that we are up against. In spite of our technological advances, such
as this e-mail, communication is breaking down due to language
diversification. With the rate of growth of non-English communities,
it is increasingly difficult to maintain viable communication.
I assume you're talking about the number of different languages spoken
in the US. Right? Has anybody established a maximum number of different
languages appropriate for maintaining viable communication? Obviously it
has to be four or more since Switzerland seems to do ok.
