For those who may be in interested in the gender of words, both the French and German Languages have concluded that Brexit is a masculine word. An excellent decision in my view. Also worth recalling recent explorations into the origins of the English Language. For years and years it was assumed that Angles and Saxons from the German part of Europe invaded the New Jerusalem, laid waste to the gentle Celts and the round table Arthurian type Romano Britons. They ravaged, pillaged and generally behaved like Vikings in their total disregard for the ethnic values of indigenous peoples. The result of course was a Dark Age, more than likely Satanic in nature, full of grief and horribleness. Sadly for this opinion, there's no actual evidence, outside of propaganda from the likes of Bede and Victorian Gentleman scholars to support the idea. More likely, newer theories suggest, the Anglo Saxon Invasion was a slow process of assimilation.
Certainly there were disagreements, some cattle and sheep raiding, but nothing
that qualified as a Barbarian Invasion, slaughtering of the innocents and
enslaving the survivors. One area of evidence for these newer ideas is in the
English Language. We don't devote time to the gender of words, we don't make a
big point out of the gender of words, we don't know that a Tomato is Feminine,
and if we do, we don't make make an issue out of it. And the thing is had the
English Language of today arrived to us as a result of conquest it would have
retained the more Germanic devotion to the gender of nouns. Die Tomate in German
is female. Now Welsh nouns do have gender, but in Welsh the softness of the
distinction between boy and girl words are basically too damn subtle for the
average foreigner. In the process of assimilation, the argument is, the English
Language in a matter of fact and rather boring way just gave up on the whole
idea of nouns having gender.
