In August I visited the home of the greatest contributor to the English Language the world has ever seen.
Coined approximately 1,500 words;
Helped contribute to the standardisation of the English language (standardization for the Americans although we are talking about the English language here);
Ended up embedding many of his own words and phrases into the English language;
Made the English language more vibrant and expressive.
In my opinion one of the most important people in history. Imagine the English language without him.
Who am I talking about?
