Features, Office In the comments on our editorial about language purism and the Psystar case, it became quite clear that language is a subject almost everyone has an opinion on - not odd if you consider that language is at the very centre of what makes us "human". Since this appears to be a popular subject, let's talk about the influence computing has had on two very minor aspects of the Dutch language.

Also interesting that Dutch is slowly loosing its declenations


Dutch lost its declensions a long, long time ago. In fact, they were already in decline in the Middle Ages. The reason for still having them around is that some pedantic Latinophiles thought Dutch would look better and more like latin with all those cases, and re-introduced them in written language and high vernacular. Really stupid.
