If you actually want me to understand you, then English is what is needed. If you aren't addressing me, then Algonquin or Classical Greek or Bantu or Modern Irish all work about equally as well. It's no big whup to me (that's NYC Amerenglish). Any suggestion that one might "just go ahead and learn the language" is as silly as suggesting that one might "just go ahead and learn to play the concertina" or "just go ahead and develop a fluency in topological calculus". Sure, in my spare time. The vast majority of traditional musicans alive today do not speak Irish. That doesn't mean that the occasional Irish language post here will end the world, either. Keep calm and carry on. Incerelysay oursyay --P.g.M.
