<a href=\"\" target=\"_blank\">Journalist and Poet Mark Abley</a>

By Doug Fabrizio

Salt Lake City, UT – Journalist and writer Mark Abley predicts that by 2015 half the world's population will be speaking - or at least learning - English. But as the language sweeps the globe, it's not just changing those it encounters - it's changing too. New words are being added at a "break-neck" rate from other languages, from hip-hop lyrics, from the blogosphere. Abley joins Doug to talk about the journey English is taking and what the future of the language sounds like. (Rebroadcast)
