By some apocryphal accounts, after the American Revolution there was talk of deposing the language of the oppressor in favor of German, French, Greek, or Hebrew. Little evidence exists that any of these alternatives was seriously discussed. No doubt Roger Sherman, a delegate to the Continental Congress, summed up the prevailing view when he quipped, "It would be more convenient for us to keep the language as it was and make the English speak Greek."

 

A more persistent legend, popularized after the Civil War and revived by the German-American Bund in the 1930s, is that German failed by a single vote to become the official language of the United States. Apparently the tale draws on two unrelated events involving Frederick A. C. Muhlenberg, a Pennsylvania German who served as the first Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives. One of these involved a petition by Virginia Germans seeking the publication of important federal laws in their language. In 1795, the House defeated this proposal on a 42-41 vote, in which Muhlenberg may have stepped down from the Speaker's chair to break a tie. Existing records, however, make it impossible to ascertain what role, if any, the Speaker played. It is known that he was never fluent in German and was widely suspected of Anglophilia.

spanish or one of two tribal dialects of nayarit. either cora or huichol. if i was huichol id be eating peyote once a year and partying hard for days. ofcourse i would have to walk the equivelant of the distance between cali and texas to get the damn peyote. if i was cora id be busy kidnapping white people and and usually killing them if they tried to escape or coverting them to tribal life.

 

damn, fuckin europeans ruined some exciting lifestyles i could've had.
