Technically, we should be thanking the Latin, French and Norse, from whom the language began. English borrows from everything, which is pretty awesome. Such a diverse language, with so many strange accents and whatnot.

German =/= Germanic.
Sweet Jesus.
Germanic Languages are pretty much, to sum it up, North-Germanic or West-Germanic.
North Germanic are mostly Scandinavia and Iceland.
West Germanic is pretty much English, Scots, Dutch, Frisian, German and Lowgerman.
East-Germanic Languages are extinct, while mostly beeing spoken in Poland back then.

The Germanic Tribes were mostly existant in Middle-Europe, and Germany is a relatively large part of that, hence Germany. They also spread towards the South Edge of Scandinavia.
So you could say roughly around Germany and Poland is where the Germanic Tribes lived.

Thank Wikipedia.

french? french came FROM latin, if you say french, then you should also say italian, because italian is MUCH older than french.... not to mention italian, french, spanish, catalan, and portuguese came from latin at around the same time

The language we speak today borrows much more from other languages than the original Latin it's based on, and French influence counts as French, of course! I mean, would you call a Porsche a Volkswagen? (Well, many people do, but that's a slur against the automobile, and not what I mean)

We borrow much less from Italian than we do from Latin, French, and the Norse languages. Most Italian-rooted words are also just the Italian word in modern English, rather than an English word borrowing from the Latin root.

Even if French is a romanic language, it might be important to say that the french language had kind of antother influence than latin. It is difficult to see, which words are origininally from french an which from latin. However, latin influenced the old English during classical age and continued until the Middle Ages. But french was the dominant language for communication in modern history.Also, other romanic languages like italian or portuguese hadn't such a big impact on politics like french.

Aditionally, there are some french words which had an celtic origin. In other languages, one can see also a separation between the influences of french and latin. Most of latin words got a proper pronounciation while many french words still have some aspects of the french pronounciation.

archaic french only came about in 8th or 9th century AD...
meanwhile latin came out around 2000BC... the oldest common languages are greek, latin, archaic egyptian (mixture of Berber, Semitic, Somali and Beja) mesopotamian (a mixture of Akkadian, Eblaite, Elamite, Phoenician, Semitic, and Sumerian) and sinitic languages in asia (hokkien, hakka, and mandarin from mongolia)

the Angles.

The "Anglo" portion of Anglo-Saxon. The plural for the Anglo tribe is Angles, pronounced like Ang-gleez.

I'm pretty sure it was the romans. Otherwise we'd be speaking celtic.

Well, there is a difference between American English and British English.
User avatar #31 to #26 - octaviano (04/30/2013) [-]
You could say that American English is an 'accent'.
It's mostly the same, so an American person should understand a British person, and the other way around too.
It's like German and Lowgerman. Even when that would fit more with English and Scottish.
#35 to #31 - tomthehippie (04/30/2013) [-]
There are vastly different spellings. I would almost say they are not just accents, but different forms of the same language.

Classical Chinese vs Modern Chinese kinda thing.

British English was here first.
Therefore it is better.

Does anyone know what episode it is that Armstrong, giving a peptalk to the troops, says something about "Feel these muscles pulse with loyalty?" I want to make a gif, but I can't find it.

If sex with 2 other people is a 3some and sex with 3 other people is a 4some then you should understand why people call you handsome.

User avatar #58 - rockerrocksixty (04/30/2013) [-]
you see, the problem is that i know i'm handsome, i'm just too modest to admit it. i'm just such a sexy, humble stud that i can't manage to keep the ladies off me as i walk down the street.
