English is the JavaScript of spoken languages.

Just think about it:

- it's extremely wide-spread for historical reasons;

- it is a somewhat random mash-up of at least three other languages;

- as much as all languages have their idiosyncrasies , it tends to have the more confusing ones.

Sidenote: the fact that "idiosyncrasy" is spelled with an "sy", not a "cy", at the end is in my book an idiosyncrasy in itself.

There, idiosyncraseption. You're welcome.
