No it didnít. English isnít a Latin language.

English is very Germanic sounding and not a latin-romance sounding language but youíre wrong. English has Latin influences via french.

DanH, the clues of Latin in English words are in the English dictionary.

You could've backed that up but waited for other posters to correct you.
Never mind good effort though!

German stand up comedian Henning Vennís set including English and in colloquialisms in London and Thames estuary is pretty funny. Pretty much proves how foreigners who learn English speak better English than English people who had ignorant parents but didnít grow up on bread and dripping and little education.

Great idea. I have long thought that it was taken out of schools to keep the people dumb to what is actually being said and it worked.

Latin was once described to me as the mathematics of the language. An understanding of Latin will give you a much better handle when it comes to dealing with the state.Especially the courts..

Fully agree. Along with offering every child a basic grounding in the Classics as well.

I believe there are about 8000 Anglo Saxon words including the infamous Cunit, a huge number of French courtesy of 1066 and all that and the rest are imported from the Empire or relate to technology.

We are like the Borg we assimilate other people's culture, food, fashion, design, stabbings, FGM, Forced Marriages etc.

I thought D.H Lawrence picked up c*nt off some urchins knocking about between Croydon and selhurst. Either that or it was a first name for a time in Bermondsey.
