Imlim isn’t English


The language imlim, spoken on the island of Imlim in the Pacific Imlim, not the real Pacific, close to another island bearing the same name, did not become a world language like English despite two good opportunities. Imlim resembles English in vocabulary, grammar and semantics but has please inserted into all sentences as every other word starting from the second. Thus, Would you hand me the salt, please? on imlim is: Would please you please hand please me please the please salt, please?
