    Hey, I know it's completely off topic, but what would be the probability that if I type some random sequence of letters, it will have some meaning in English?

    Close to zero, because only 5 vowels (about 20% of the letters) are used almost 40% of the time

    Grunting worked before .....

    Hit the woman on her head and take her home.

    If we talked french we never get what we wanted anyway. Or is that...

    some made sentences will make meaning if any out of the thousands of languages that exist or extinct to date.

    a respectable gimmicky pluff will be taken otherwise 

    so careful when making sentenceTongue Out

    Because it's the language of the Internet.

    Because in most of the cases it's the first foreign language you learn in school.

    Because there are over 360 millions native speakers.

    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.

     

    China holds more people, but not all of them speak Mandarin.  More people around the world are conversant in English than are conversant in Mandarin, especially among chessplayers.

    Its there primary language so yes ALL of them do. That may not be the only language but it is the norm over there

    When you tell a joke in sounds better when you say in English.

    Even slang words sound better in English.

    Talking English in English leads to longer conversations.

    The Blues sound better in English.
