A language is a dialect with an army and a navy.
To creative people, the compendium of the white man's dialect are unfashionable, because their creations are more than what the tongue could say. - Michael Bassey Johnson
All nationalistic distinctions - all claims to be better than somebody else because you have a different-shaped skull or speak a different dialect - are entirely spurious, but they are important so long as people believe in them. - George Orwell
