I heard Will Self while giving a radio talk in that rather pompous style he affects claim that the English language was better (if I understood him correctly) for all the new words and jargon that recent technology and diverse cultures had caused to be imported into it.
I think Mr Self overlooks the problem of new words which mostly drive out old words. Language is a tool for communication. It is used for communications between the living and communications from the dead to the living. Driving out old words by using new words makes it harder to understand the dead whose wisdom will be lost to all but a handful of academics who will acquire the knowledge to interprets their words.
New words for new concepts are important. New words for old merely puts the person who exchanges a word for a new word in the same position as he who exchanged an old lamp for a new one.
