'ugly'?

Interesting article. I love Mark Twain, but actually he never said that the language was 'ugly'! - he described it as 'awful', in a tongue-in-cheek way. If you have read 'The Awful German Language' ('Die schreckliche deutsche Sprache'), his humour and deep fondness for the language come across very clearly in the ways he pokes fun at it.
