(noun) Linguaphobia is described as the fear of foreign or unknown languages. The term 'Linguaphobia' began rising in popularity after huge ethnic neighbourhoods of people speaking in foreign languages continued to sprout up mainly in Europe due to the mass migration of refugees. 'Linguaphobia' is on track to become a new pedantic insult directed at people that do not want their national language to be replaced by unassimilating foreigners in their own country.
Greg: "Just look at what's happening to this town, for crying out loud, just about half of the people here don't even speak English these days..."
Simon: "Hey Greg, I didn't take you for a nazi with linguaphobia! These fighting aged refugees fled their country because of economic issues, they didn't have time to learn our language, and so what if their birth rate is twice as high as ours and their language is on track to be the dominant one by the turn of the century!"
Greg: "I'm not linguaphobic, Simon! I couldn't give a damn which language someone speaks, I just don't want my people's national language being replaced!"
