Chinese influence on English language: Will the number English words with Chinese origin increase in the coming decades?

  • Chinese influence on English language will increase

    Over the centuries new words have been introduced into the English language with Chinese roots. Those new words were brought back by traders on ships, missionaries returning from China and other sources. The number interactions between the Chinese speakers and English Speakers is going to increase with the ongoing technological revolution. As those interactions increase so will the introduction of new English words with Chinese origins.

  • Yes, the number of English words with Chinese origin will increase in the coming decades.

    Yes, the number of English words with Chinese origin will increase in the coming decades. Considering the reckless behavior of Donald Trump and his antagonizing of Chinese leadership, it is fully possible that Americans will speak nothing but Chinese in the future as they have the population and ability to take the U.S. over.

  • Yes, the number of English words with Chinese origin will increase in the coming decades as the culture evolves.

    Although the standard Mandarin language will never change and should be respected, the English language is becoming increasingly popular within the Chinese culture. Therefore it is just a matter of a society evolving over time, which will allow for Chinese origin to not only increase the English words, but become expected. While it is true that the English words which are currently based on Chinese origin are basically very low in number, that only gives even more reason for the increase as time goes by. As societies become more and more integrated, it will become even more necessary because of our diverse interactions.

  • There is more contact.

    Whenever two languages intermingle, eventually some of the worlds start to sound the same. For example, in English, the word is bus. In Spanish, the word is autobus, with a slightly different pronunciation. As the United States and China conduct more and more business, each language will pick up more words from the other.
