Governor Schwarzenegger's English


Linguist Geoff Pullum confirms what I've been saying for a while now. It's not just that Gray Davis' bigoted comment about Arnold Schwarzenegger's English was false. His English is excellent and far better than most American native English speakers could even hope to have. He even said he'd strangle a kitten to be able to speak a foreign language as well as Schwarzenegger speaks English. He has a German accent, but that has absolutely nothing to do with his command of the language, and people understand him just fine even with the accent. "Any further attempts by politicians and journalists to accuse Schwarzenegger of being a pidgin-speaking inarticulate foreigner will do nothing but exhibit the ignorance of the accusers."
