ENGLISH LANGUAGE 1 NOTES FORM 5 And 6

ENGLISH LANGUAGE 1 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 Anglia, a peninsula on the Baltic Sea (not to be confused with East Anglia), and the Angles, one of the ancient Germanic peoples that migrated to the area of Great Britain that later took their name: England.

Living languages most closely related to English include the Low Saxon and Frisian languages, while English’s vocabulary has been significantly influenced by Old Norman French and Latin, as well as by other Germanic languages, particularly Old Norse (a North Germanic language).[6][7][8]

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.

Modern English has been spreading around the world since the 17th century by the worldwide influence of the British Empire and the United States.

TRANSLATION AND INTERPRETATION

Through all types of printed and electronic media of these countries, English has become the leading language of international discourse and the lingua franca in many regions and professional contexts such as science, navigation and law.

 Modern English grammar is the result of a gradual change from a typical Indo-European dependent-marking pattern, with a rich inflectional morphology and relatively free word order, to a mostly analytic pattern with little inflection, and a fairly fixed subject–verb–object word order.

Modern English relies more on auxiliary verbs and word order for the expression of complex tensesaspect and mood, as well as passive constructions, interrogatives and some negation.
