lacking flexiblity

Not much on the Motu mania from me, I prefer the Novus Ordo (having been to a Tridentine Mass or two), but I couldn't help but enjoy this comment on CNW's Off the Record, A blow to Anglo-Saxons
Latin lacks that dynamic malleability which permitted the ICEL texts creatively to split infinitives and change males to females and use sentences in which nouns and verbs do not agree. If the Latin types have their way, we may soon have Masses at which Anglo-Saxons speak the same way as the chaps who threatened civilization with the Spanish Armada.
