ENGLISH LANGUAGE FORM THREE NOTES

English is a West Germanic language of the Indo-European language family, originally spoken by the inhabitants of early medieval England.

 It is named after the Angles, one of the ancient Germanic peoples that migrated to the area of Great Britain that later took their name, England.

Both names derive from Anglia, a peninsula on the Baltic Sea, which is not to be confused with East Anglia, the Eastern part of England that comprises the counties of Norfolk, Suffolk and Essex.

English is most closely related to Frisian and Low Saxon, while its vocabulary has been significantly influenced by other Germanic languages, particularly Old Norse (a North Germanic language), as well as by Old Norman, French and Latin.

English has developed over the course of more than 1,400 years. The earliest forms of English, a group of West Germanic (Ingvaeonic) dialects brought to Great Britain by Anglo-Saxon settlers in the 5th century, are collectively called Old English.

Middle English began in the late 11th century with the Norman conquest of England; this was a period in which English was influenced by Old French, in particular through its Old Norman dialect.

Early Modern English began in the late 15th century with the introduction of the printing press to London, the printing of the King James Bible and the start of the Great Vowel Shift.

English is an Indo-European language and belongs to the West Germanic group of the Germanic languages.

 Old English originated from a Germanic tribal and linguistic continuum along the Frisian North Sea coast, whose languages gradually evolved into the Anglic languages in the British Isles, and into the Frisian languages and Low German/Low Saxon on the continent.
