You are right. We make a lot of mistakes. But I think our mistakes don't change English language:)

The English language is unique in its changes. Here is a link, where a guy gives the idea of the Old English. In such way people used to speak about only a thousand years ago. Can you catch something common with the present one?

Yes, especially by English learners (the way they talk and mistakes they do).

I think this article about why English spelling and pronunciation is so irregular also explains well the reasons why English has changed over the years. http://blog.esl-languages.com/blog/learn-languages/english/english-spelling-complicated-irregular/

My personal opinion is that if English is to remain as the closest thing we have to an international language, it will have to remain as a very fluid, changing language and  keep it´s characteristic of adopting a lot of words from other languages and incorporating them into English. I expect English to continue to change rapidly as the internet facilitates the global exchange of ideas.

Thank you.

Of course,  If we compare English in the past and in the present you would be totally right. English in the present sounds very sweetly. But some rules changed as " ain't, won't. I can write a lot of examples. When native English speakers say " won't", ain't maybe I will not catch these words.
