About

English is a Western Germanic language that was first spoken in early medieval England and is now a lingua franca worldwide.

It derives its roots from languages of northern Europe (land of origin Angles, Saxons and Frisians) whose vocabulary has been enriched and the syntax and grammar modified by Anglo-Norman French, brought by the Normans then by French with the Plantagenets. The English language is thus composed of about 60 to 70% of words of Norman and French origin. English is also very influenced by Romance languages, particularly by the use of the Latin alphabet as well as Arabic numerals.

The de facto official language of the United Kingdom, Ireland and other islands of the British archipelago (Isle of Man, Channel Islands), English is the mother tongue of all or part of the population, and depending on the case, the language or one of the official languages of several countries, wholly or partly derived from the former British colonies, including the United States, Canada, Australia and New Zealand, which are brought together under the name Anglo-Saxon world, although there is no universal definition of this expression.

It is also an official language or language of exchange in many countries of the former British Empire, even in the absence of a significant Anglo-Saxon population (Kenya, Nigeria, Hong Kong, India, Pakistan, etc.).

Many countries with English as the official language are united in the Commonwealth (although for some it is not the only official language).
