You'll find many words in many European languages are quite similar- the majority of European languages are largly derived from Ancient Greek and Latin. And then other contempory languages affect those around them- for example (I kid you not) the English word Parliament comes from the French "Parler Ment"- talk shop.

Yes, French, Spanish, Italian and Portuguese are all Romance languages (i.e. derived from Latin). English is Germanic but has loads of words taken from French due to the Norman Conquest.

English is actualy very much a hodgepodge of other languages- most of which were dervived from Latin and Ancient Greek, although English borrows far more directly from Ancient Greek and William Shakespears ability to create new words than it does from any Germanic languages. Yes the Angles and Saxons were Germanic- the Vikings, Normans, Romans, Celts and (in the North of England) Picts most certainly were not.

EDIT: Although the Norman Conquest didn't effect English very much at all- only really our definitions of 'swear words'- the main reason French became such and influence on English is that French was one of Europes diplomatic languages, along with Latin.

Well, according to Wikipedia,
Quote:
English originated in England, and is a West Germanic language which developed from Old English, the language of the Anglo-Saxons. As a result of the Norman Conquest and other events in English history, it has been heavily influenced, more than any other Germanic language, by French and Latin.
What a random thing to argue about...

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.
