Description
The complaint of the people against the language comes entirely from the fact that they don't appreciate it. In addition, I believe that they also lack a lot of English literature background. If it was explained to them what it means and how it is more formal than the contemporary English, it would have much more respect. It must be noted that people should differentiate between the modern English and the style in which the text is written. Just like in the Coptic Psalmody where, in some praises, the verses are written in way that they would be sorted alphabetically.
