What is the only word in the English langauge (Sp?) with four consecutive double letter?

Hint: It might be "bookkeeper."

Ours has become the First Universal Language. Combined with robust immigration, it is of great commercial value to us. Want to do business in South Korea? We have young, upwardly mobile South Koreans who are fluent in English (American-style) and the Korean tongue.

What an enormous comparative advantage!


I would appreciate knowing who is reading this stuff, and also appreciate your independent thoughts.

How do I go about putting wheels on it?

It means a lot to me personally and commercially.

Ben, the first universal language was Latin. And it was a universal language for a lot longer than English has been.

Yes, but.
Latin was the root of many European languages. There was no television, radio, telephones, EMail, cell phones, streaming video --- etc. etc.etc. --- to spread the word.

The American Empire of Ideas --- driven in large part by the English language (i.e "American") is GLOBAL.
