In the year 3000, will the British-island language be more similar to that of 2000 than that of 2000 was to that of 1000? I rather think so. There will be plenty of neologisms over the next millennium, but unlike the 2000/1000 split, there will be primary sources that you can look at then from AD 2000 that speak aloud. I think this will make it seem more immediate and identifiable, and the language more memorable and therefore ongoingly understandable.

What do you think?
