    The problem with English is that it's a bastard language: a mix of Latin, Greek, Norse, Anglo-Saxon ("Old English") and Norman-French, with the odd word from other languages thrown in.

    fixed it.
    You hem me in -- behind and before;
    you have laid your hand upon me.
    Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,
    too lofty for me to attain.

    It's not awesome when it comes to phonology, in my opinion.

    The only awesome thing about it is that it gives English a very broad vocabulary. Instead of "fixing it" (French origin) you could have "repaired it" (another of French origin) or "mended it" (Old English).
