I'm on lingo now.  Should further follow-ups be directed there, or have
we reached a state of 仕方ない :-)

Further replies should be directed to Lingo, yes. I removed the TLUG cross-post and CC'd in Steve. This is BCC'd to TLUG; a trick that only the Listmaster can use. :)

Any time languages come into contact, they can affect each other, and
cause change.

Sure. I meant, "Why would English have *this* influence?" i.e. why the を化 (sorry) of が?

Now, some speech groups are highly protective of their languages, and
reject all outside influence, including loanwords.  But we know this is
not true of the Japanese :-)

This is a little odd, given how proud the Japanese are of their languages.

And by "some speech groups", you mean the French; admit it! ;)
