History of English (combined) English is Germanic not Latinic (Latin) it has Latin ties and structure but not Latin based. How I know well I took Latin and read up on the history. But here is a quick and funny video that also shows how the English language is Germanic simplicity.
Now once again I’m not saying there are no Latin words in the English Language cause you can point out a few of them for sure… but at the same time if you have taken Latin. One cannot directly tie Latin to English as well as one can tie Germanic (meaning ancient German) to us. All I’m saying is saying we are entirely Latin based is not true when most of our common words did come from Latin. Just an idea. If you disagree please give me resources refuting this point ( not from Wikipedia either cause we all know Wikipedia sucks!!!! As a resource and people can change the information whenever they want!!!!). Once again give me a resource and I’ll read it and send out a sorry note to everyone. But from what I learned… Germanic (not German) but Germanic. Meaning loosely based around the ancient versions of it. Now of course, German like many other languages are tied to Latin or we would call Romantic but totally saying we take from Latin is not correct either considering we have stolen (adopted) and made up a few words that was not created or even from Latin (Romans). Some of these words like Raccoon, Canoe and Cannibal are not from a Romantic base like German, Spanish and French. Some of these words are from the Native Americans, Chinese, Caribbeans and Africans. That clearly are not from Romantic ties. Therefore giving more reason as to how the English language is more than Latin. It’s a highly complicated mixture of languages. Latin structure but not all of their words.
