And it makes you wonder too about the 'language of the page'. how many sites have more than one language on a page? If not many, then why?
they do exist, review pages on LT would be an example. Another would be this:
I can't think of many books that have mixed languages outside of journals.
It is really fascinating research. Internet text is a linguist's delight because people self-publish content, so it will be interesting to see if it follows similar trends to traditionally published material, or shows new trends.
Hey, binders, I like your library!
Yes, I liked that too. Google people are super-bright, but they aren't as well rounded as they ought to be.
Such things are bound to cast doubt on the intellectual depth of the subsequent stuff.

I have many books with more than one language. Besides the books with original (usually ancient) language and English or German on facing page, I have many travel photo books with text in several languages. Many academic books written in German have an English summary at the end. I have also seen academic anthologies with articles in whatever language the particular person wrote in.
