OK. I couldn't send another yesterday. It just went blank. Probably a connection issue on my side.

Conquered? The Acts of Union were democratically agreed.

You do seem to have an obsession with sodomy.

Only with a lovely arse like yours, MATE! I do love the way you blokes call each other mate. You know it means the one you breed with, dontcha? And by the way, wtf is a 'bloke'? It sounds like a noise I'd make while vomiting or the sound of a turd striking the water's surface.

I hope you don't mind me asking.

Then there's chap and geezer and lorry and bonnet that whole thing with biscuits. Get the bone. WTF? OH! The phone. OK.

For fuks sake.

Here's a hint : lay off the alcohol.

Such rantings and imagination can only be fuelled by absinthe.

At least we speak our own language. The clue is in English from England. Not only do you not have a language of your own, you can't even learn to speak ours properly.

I think you greatly oversimplify this. What about Normans, Romans and so many other nations playing their role in the development of English? Especially the Normans?

I think you greatly oversimplify this.

Sure the language has had additions over the years but the fact remains that English is named after the Angles who came from Denmark and so the English should be more circumspect when they claim that Anglophonic Americans don't have their own native language because neither do they. The Romans didn't alter English because the Angles arrived in England after the Romans left. The Normans did make the language prettier by introducing French words.

Which does not change the fact the British and Americans can perfectly understand one another speaking "English" but the Danes speaking Danish and English speaking English won't understand one another.

What is the message you want to send?

the Danes speaking Danish

The Danes were a different Germanic tribe than the Angles but both lived in the place known as Denmark. I never said English was Danish.

Did you say all Angles expatriated to the British Isles and the language spoken today there is Anglese?

Read my posts to see what I said and you will see that I made no claim about all the Angles moving to Britain, nor did I mispell "English" as you have done above.

Still don't get your message

My message was directed at Daisy who claimed, in post #75, that English is not "owned" by Anglophonic Americans. I wanted to remind her that English is not native to Britain and so if Americans don't own English, because it didn't originate in America, then neither do the British because it came to their islands from elsewhere too.

Well DE, if you want to be really pedantic. The Germanic tribes who settled in what was to become England spoke different dialects. When they unified as England, the dialect used as the lingua franca was in fact the dialect spoken in Wessex, so English evolved from the West Saxon dialect. The dialects were brought to England by the English and it was the English language that was taken to America.

Bollocks. Or at least, mostly bollocks. Modern English (ie, from about the Tudor period or if you prefer the 18th century, inasmuch as it was only the later standardisation that nailed it down) is a qualitatively different beast from its ancestors. You might as well say that Daimler (think it was him) couldn't claim the invention of the motor car owing to the prior existence of wheels, axles and so on. I mean, let's face it, all he did was replace a fucking horse with an internal combustion engine. Child's play, really.

I noticed in DeQuincey's Confessions Of An English Opium-Eater that the Welsh call the English language Sassenach. Why did the Angles get their name in English rather than the Saxons?

Isnt the whole evolution of mankind in some way related to our predecessors? its difficult to prove any real invention/revelation that hasnt been influenced in some way by others. For example: the inventor on the motor car wouldnt have gotten very far without the wheel.

Why did the Angles get their name in English rather than the Saxons?

No one can give a definite answer to that, apart from the point that the different tribes referred to themselves as Anglecynn, meaning they were of the same ancestry and related, they shared a religion and dialects that were understandable to each other, the Angles may have been the larger group. but it was a Wessex king that unified the people, so the Angles and their kin named their unified land Englalond, but it was Alfred King of Wessex who unified them who made his own dialect the main one.

English is a West Germanic language that originated from the Anglo-Frisian dialects brought to Britain by Germanic invaders from various parts of what is now northwest Germany and the Netherlands

Whose language do you speak?

Anglo-Frisian

There's no such thing as Anglo-Frisian. Just Frisian will do, thank you very much.
