Where is Manderia?

Manderian is spoken in China, so think why it is the most spoken.

Why isn't the forum in Mandarin, then?

 

cause chess.coms owner speaks primarily english. As for why its most spoken look it up it should be obvious since china holds more people than america and all other primary english speaking countries.

Is that a dirty squirrel in your pocket, or do you just want to eat a pancake?

This looks like a job for Dr Pimsleur.

Now there's a language professor I love to hate.

You should see my thread "Everybody Speaks English!" If you haven't already.

Actually, don't.

AndyClifton

A better question is, "Why does everybody play the English?"

FadulJoseA

Because "English is the language of prestige and power." Wink

AndyClifton

I thought that was French!

And btw why does everybody play the French?

No. The English language degenerates with every syllable that we speak and/or type.

DrSpudnik

It works for me!

AndyClifton

Hey, it's not growing older!  It's growing better!

VULPES_VULPES

No, it's growing more and more colliquial, in my opinion. 

AndyClifton

That's good!  Don't be a stuffy book-bound dork!
