Not really proud of this post. I think I could have written something better, but I just wanted this to be done so I can stop thinking about it...

This is just speculation on my side from a non-English speaking country, but technology is going to change our relationship with Lingua franca. With advances in machine translation, I think that the utilitarian need for a lingua franca might change. The tendency of social media to fragment society might also give rise to nationalists that actively resist foreign languages.

English's rise as the global Lingua franca has a lot to do with the post-WW2 dominance of the USA. In the British empire, while geographically widespread, English penetration within societies was limited. Perhaps we won't see another 'top' language, but a few local languages supported by machine translation, as the world moves into a phase where there isn't just one superpower, but several regional powers.

"political, technological, cultural, and trade dominance of English in our times". I hate it with my guts. Thanks for coming to my TED Talk.
