Somehow, I don't see that argument persuading a few hundred million people
changing their daily speech habits, nor goverments to enforce a world wide
Standard English in schools.
But the problems I run into trying to translate conlang terms rarely involve
variant English usages - more typically, the conword is not coterminous with
any word in any English.
