Many people think that English - the most popular language in the world. So: debunk this myth. The most common language - still Chinese. And the second most common - Spanish. English also gets an honorable bronze and about 400 million speakers. But the study, or use it as a second language, more than 750 million people.
Fact 1 In English, there are lots of interesting words, such as "indivisibility", where the letter "I" is repeated 6 times. Or, for example, Goddessship (божественность) - the only word which consonant is repeated 3 times in a row (almost like we have in the word "long-necked" - the only case where the letter is repeated 3 times in a row, although the vowel). Or here's another: rhythm - the longest word with one vowel.
Fact 12 As for the word goodbye: everyone knows how it happened? And the history of the word is somewhat similar to our Russian "thank you" (it was "God save", which eventually fell to the "thank you"). Same thing with goodbye: goodbye once fully sounded like «God be with ye» (Old English, "Yes Lord be with you").
