ITIL and the English Language

It is reported that English is the hardest language to learn. It is easy to see why when you spend so much time teaching the vagaries of our articulate enunciation!!

I have to say, ITIL doesn't help. All authors (to the best of my knowledge) speak excellent English - I would have to say - too well!! English is my first (and only) language, but even I struggle with some of the concepts raised.

The nuances of words used create confusion and ultimately a lack of true understanding. Without true understanding it is impossible to appreciate the value of ITIL v3.

BUT - the value is there and I for one will continue to "spread the word" - albeit using far simpler words.
