Apple fanbois are officially sheeple. Yes, you heard. Deal with it


Re: "the grammar is relatively simple"

What would you consider a language with complicated grammar then?

Basque, Finnish, Navajo, Adyghe, Abkhaz, Korean, Icelandic, Thai, ...

English grammar is in fact pretty simple compared even with its latinate and germanic progenitors. I recall learning Spanish, that the trickiest things to get to grips with were the imperfect past tense (which doesn't exist in English) and the subjunctive mood (which English has almost lost).

Now Afrikaans - there's a really, really simple grammar.
