Can anyone name for me ONE TIME where the conquerors decided to stop speaking their language and started speaking the conquerees language? For instance, there's a joke about the French complaining about speaking English in a military conference of NATO. And the Frenchman is bitching and moaning about why they must always speak English. Well, an American General steps in and states that perhaps it is because the Americans saw to it that the French didn't wind up having to speak German. Can anyone explain to me why we don't speak Native American language and why we don't eat their food and practice their customs on a daily basis? Mods, please don't delete this. I'm getting to a point where I'll be discussing all of the Abrahamic religions.
