Stone handaxe
THIS small handaxe is one of the most beautiful in the British Museum. It is made from quartz with attractive amethyst banding, a difficult material from which to make tools because it is extremely hard. The toolmaker would have had to hit with considerable force and accuracy to remove flakes. Such a high degree of difficulty makes the thin, symmetrical shape of this piece a masterpiece of the toolmakers’ art.

Why is English the world's 'dream' language? Well, for one thing our grammar is so sensible, dependable and straightforward. Most languages have two or three forms for you, depending on status, intimacy, and so on. English, democratically, has only one. Also English has done away with all that unnecessary fuss over nouns and adjectives: masculine, feminine, singular, plural - not to mention nominative, accusative, dative, and so on. Furthermore, English has the Present Perfect Tense which, as its name implies, is quite simply the best tense in the world. English has lots of prepositions, and these are a great help in global positioning systems and personal orientation programmes. There are some unfortunate languages in the world that don't have any prepositions at all, which can make it very difficult to find your trousers in the morning.

Another advantage of English is that it has a vast vocabulary. We have lots and lots of synonyms. For example, we have over 50 words meaning mad, at least 80 which mean drunk, and 231 adjectives to describe the weather. What a valuable resource for any civilisation!
