How pronunciation errors have made the English language what it is today

I came across this very interesting article on the Garudian’s website today (link at the bottom of this post) expressing how by us mispronouncing words we have changed our language. Through history we have changed our language as the times have, allowing us to understand each other, and some of the errors are due to lazy speech or mishearing, truly incredible.
