It is widely accepted that English is the global language of modern times.
About three decades ago, French was recognized as the language of diplomacy (外交), German was considered the language of science technology. English now dominates(主導) not only as the language of science but also diplomacy, computing, tourism. Today, in terms of native speakers, Mandarin Chinese is the world′s
Yet there are people who believe that China will become the most powerful country in the world. Some have even fixed the date as early as the year 2020. At present, while English is more widely spoken than any other language,there are more people who speak Chinese than English due to the large population in China alone. If China does become a world power, there is no doubt that this language will spread worldwide.
As the controversy over which language will become dominant in the world continues, there are many who feel that the dominance of English is unique irreversible (不可逆的 ). However, a separate study from David Graddol′s suggests that English′s dominance in the scientific area will continue. There is also an argument that the English language would be changed greatly by 2020 for various reasons. With the possibility of China rising as a world power,Mandarin could definitely challenge the dominance of English as a global language.

All but the tiniest of roads have to have names so they can be recognized on a map, so people can ask directions to them. Americans name a lot of bridges, too.
Very often these names carry a clear geographical reference the Pennsylvania Turnpike, for example. Or,like the George Washington Bridge, roads bridges are named for famous historical figures or powerful officers.
We make a big deal out of naming things, as when someone decided to name an airport after a U. S. judge. So now we have the Baltimore Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport.
Many,if not most, of our college buildings are named for wealthy people who gave a lot of money to the schools. our sports centers took this idea a step further. Companies paid a whole lot of money for what′s called the "naming rights" to U. S. Cellular Field in Chicago, for example, Citizens Bank Park in Philadelphia.
Now the governor(州長) of Virginia, Bob McDonnell,wants to sell naming rights to roads bridges in the state. He says not just companies, but also wealthy people, would help the Virginia transportation budget(預算) by paying to have their names--or perhaps those of loved ones--placed on roads bridges, thus on maps as well.
People hold different views, however. Supporters say Americans are used to having things sponsored(贊助).
Others disagree, considering the idea as the next step in the "companies of America. " They wonder how far such an idea might spread, where it would end:at the Burger King Pacific Ocean, perhaps.
