English is a developing borrowing language and change is inevitable, especially so with the rise of global media. If it were not, we would still be using Dr Johnsons dictionary - but not the one Baldrick burned. I'm a native English speaker, but having lived overseas for the last 16 years, my language had changed slightly with my environment. For example, I often use 'cheque' (not check!) instead of bill and my accent must have changed as I'm sometimes mistaken for being Australian (horror of horrors!). Change is inevitable - you can't resist it!
