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. Andreas
