It is with a heavy heart that I must inform you of the passing of a pillar of our society. On Sunday afternoon, following a short illness, English Language drew her last breath among close family members.
Her demise has been widely commented upon, with sympathy being expressed by #textspeak and cyber-space was overwhelmed with the sheer volume of crying emoticons. Heartfelt condolences have been expressed by 4eva, amazeballs, pmsl and roflol. English Language is best remembered for her staunch adherence to structure and rules, but in recent years she demonstrated a totes admirable flexibility iykwim in opening her arms to embrace fleek, fat-shaming and facepalm into her circle.
Funeral arrangements TBC, family flowers only pls and any donations to the Oxford Dictionary.
