Features of the English Language

English is spoken extensively in different parts of the world. In total, 508 million people speak English. Due to its political, economic, scientific, cultural and military influence, as well was the British colonial expansion since the 18th and 19th centuries, the English language has spread worldwide. Currently, it is the primary language for international discourse and the lingua franca in many regions. The English language is studied considerably; it is also the official language of several Commonwealth countries and is one of the six official languages of the European Union and many multinational organizations.

Short History of the English language

English is a Indo-European language from the West Germanic group. Before the Latinizing Norman conquest of Britain, several Anglo Saxon dialects dominated the linguistic landscape of most of Great Britain, reducing its surviving Celtic-speaking people to the corners of the island (Wales and the Northern parts of Scotland). Showing little regard for local rights, invading Anglo Saxons called locals Walh (singular) and Walha (plural) and their land Wealas (generic term used by Germanic Anglosaxons for “Celtic foreigner”) and cornered the people who had lived as Celtic Britons and under Roman rule for centuries in what is present-day Wales. Notice that the modern Welsh name for themselves is Cymry, and Cymru is the Welsh name for Wales and they mean “fellow-countrymen”. One of the particular characteristics of Anglosaxon dialects was their preference for diphtongs, which is a particular feature of English versus the majority of European languages. The Word English is derived from the Anglosaxon tribe Angles, originating in present-day Schleswig-Holstein.

Viking invasions in the North and East in the 9th and 10th centuries fragmented the language considerably by adding new forms of Germanic variations and creating a fusion of closely related dialects known as Old English. However, the English language has been greatly influenced culturally by Latin as the language of religion and cultural life in Europe for centuries and lexically French after the conquest of Britain by the French-speaking Normans in the 11th. Loss of declension cases and conjugated verbal forms separate English from other Germanic and Nordic languages, as well as a very marked Vowel Shift which began after the Black Death around the middle of the 14th century possibly caused by mass migration to the Southeast of England and some culturally-derived hypercorrections (pro or anti-French sentiment).
