With its vocabulary of approximately one million words, English is by far the world's richest language but only because is so gleefully accepts words from other languages.
For example, there is no counterpart in English for 'silhouette,' 'caravan,' 'schooner,' 'chipmunk' or 'hammock' to mention just a few so we use the foreign word itself.
Indeed, a mere 5% of words in English are derived from Anglo-Saxon.

Albert Jay Nock (1873-1945)

Frank speaks his cinema-babble in the dark, wishing himself across the sea to the inimitable Piccadilly. He remembers how an onion crossed his palm somewhere on down the Lost Highway, and how the shape of Piccadilly's bald head mimicked, exactly, the curve of the onion. Vidalia the harbinger, Vidalia the prophecy.
