The Old English language is derived from a dialect spoken in the northen part of Germany with which it also resembles very much. Of course after the conquest of the British islands, by the saxons and Angles, they have overtaken in part words used by the roman conquerors before them. After 1066 A.D., year of the french conquest the migration of latin words into the Saxon language continued to accelerate.
Fact is that the architecture of the basic English language stems from the “auld” Saxons and Angles, but the main vocabulary is composed of words steming from the Latin or “changed latin” called French.
Trough the mixture of this two people Saxons on one hand, and the French or Latin related on the other, and not only, the contemporan English people resulted which could claim for themselfs kind of german order and french(latin) geniality which made them also very successful indeed.
(and of course a constant belief in God.)
