Interesting but not compelling. More history lesson than showing the origin of words we use.
"The Sunday Times commented that 'to be born an English-speaker is to win one of the top prizes in life's lottery. And this can be said without a hint of triumphalism, sexism, or racism, without annoying anybody except the French.'"
