Die schreckliche deutsche Sprache /The Awful German Language

Die schreckliche deutsche Sprache /The Awful German Language - Mark Twain Although I definitely agreed with a lot of the difficulties that the author had with German, I found his assumption that English is a nearly perfect language that other languages should compare themselves with more than a bit irritating. His insistence on using English words in his German speech was nearly enough to make me put down the book for good, as it is something I get more than enough of when I talk to native English speakers.
