It does when you wish to establish cultural hegemony.

Cultural hegemony - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The English didn't force the Scots to start wrongly telling the world that haggis is a Scottish innovation.

The gaelic word for haggis is taigeis, pronounced taggish, in certain circumstances the word is lenited (an h inserted after the t to soften the sound) it becomes thaigeis and is pronounced haggish.
