This isn't as much of a "prediction" as a statement of fact predicated on history.

The language of Chaucer is unrecognizable as "English". We don't "thee" and "thou" much any more and, like, you know, like, sh1t is like, you know, a'changin', Dude.

I've learned Norwegian and now especially Spanish considering the way things are going in this country. Hehehehe
