French vs. English Usage

In his Growth and Structure of the English Language, Otto Jespersen said,

“The French language is like the stiff French garden of Louis XIV, while the English is like an English park, which is laid out seemingly without any definite plan, and in which you are allowed to walk everywhere according to your fancy without having to fear a stern keeper enforcing rigorous regulations.”

(MacNeil [2009]: 66)
