The English language has gone through a lot of changes, and it is changing every day. New words are getting added to dictionaries now and then. The most common practice these days is to add two words to form a new word. And that’s where dumbilingual comes into play.
The word “dumbilingual” is not just a word; it’s an experiment. I keep coming with new words often and search for them on the Google to see if they have been used earlier or are currently being used. Today I thought of running an experiment to check how long it takes for Google to pick up a page which is pretty new. Earlier, I thought that there would not be any web pages with the word “dumbilingual” in it, but when I searched Google, I saw three results, which means that it’s been mentioned online at least three times before I thought of writing a specific page dedicated to it.
The first search result for dumbilingual was from some English forum related to learning ESL, and the other two were from some random Pinterest boards which I did not look. Now the target for me is to get this page to rank in no one position in a very fast time. It should not take much time, and honestly, I believe that the page should be available in the Google index within 24 hours. But not much can be said without testing, and since my website is not that popular at all, it is not possible for the Google to index it in a very less time. Still, it’s something I just have to find out.
I think I’ve written enough about the experiment and now I should talk about the meaning of the word. It is said that English speaking people are usually not bilinguals and it’s very difficult for them to learn a new language. Some of them who try to learn a new language do very bad at it and sound so dumb as a bilingual. So, any native English speaker who tries to learn another language but is not successful at can be termed as dumbilingual.
