English will turn into Panglish in 100 years

English as it is spoken today will have disappeared in 100 years and could be replaced by a global language called Panglish, researchers claim.

New words will form and meanings will change with the most dramatic changes being made by people learning English as a second language, says Dr Edwin Duncan, a historian of English at Towson University in Maryland, in the US.

According to the New Scientist, the global form of English is already becoming a loose grouping of local dialects and English-based common languages used by non-native speakers to communicate.
