oh, knowing a few languages myself i safely can say, it is not a specific  
english problem -- others have it as well.
and german being spoken and developed in an area where most of europe's

do, is in no way different -- only, here the inconsistent spelling is  
believed to be part of the national identity and needs to be protected by  
law ...
