Languages were corrupted yesterday thanks to ignorant peasants.
Today they are corrupted by the pedantry and carelessness of the uncultivated specialist.

    Las lenguas se corrompían ayer por obra y gracia de campesinos ignorantes.
    Hoy se corrompen por pedantería e incuria del especialista inculto.
