Most of English's Germanic words were in fact outlawed by the Normans- although, yes after some research, I was somewhat ignoring the Germanic impact. English is a Germanic language, althugh there is also a huge influence from Latin and Ancient Greek- as I said earlier, English is a hodgepodge of many European languages.
