HISTORY OF ENGLISH

English is the principal language and communication system of the United Kingdom, UnitedStates, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa and other British-influenced countries where they understand and speak the vast majority of its inhabitants.

English belongs to the Anglo-Frisian, which in turn is included in the western branch of the Germanic languages, a subfamily of Indo-European languages. Is related to the Frisian language, somewhat less with the Dutch and some LowGerman dialects, and maintains links with the modern High German.

In the evolution of English is composed of three stages: Old English, also known as Anglo-Saxon, dated between the year 449 and the 1066 or 1100, the Middle English, covering the period between the years 1066 or 1100 to the 1500; and modern, with two stages, the classic, from 1500 until 1660, and the contemporary, from 1660 to thepresent day.

Old English is a variant of West Germanic language, which led to the island, around the year 449, the invading Jutes, Angles and Saxons. Since then, this nation, who had been Romanized and fell within the Celtic culture (especially that of the Britons), it became dominated by invaders who brought a language called Anglo-Saxon culture. We developed a variant of the language in whichit traced several dialects, spoken by the Jutes, West Saxon spoken by the Saxons and the different varieties of whites. In the ninth century the West Saxon was the language most used in the prose written by King Alfred the Great, the first legislature of England. Translated from Latin the works of St. Augustine, Gregory and Bede. However, the dialect of the Angles was the language that he wrote theepic poem Beowulf, and elegiac poetry that had some interest.

The language took shape as a national language was influenced Latin in two stages: first, by contact with the Roman Empire, the second with the arrival and the evangelization of St. Augustine, until the eleventh century. From this period come the words related to religious terminology such as altar, priest, psalm ('altar', 'priest','psalm', respectively).

Following the Viking invasions from the eighth century, the language was influenced by Old Norse. This fact should be a series of words related to the sea and navigation, and others related to social organization, such as law, take, cut, both ('law', 'take', 'cut', 'both') and plow, inflected form of the verb to be.

Old English was a language with a greater degree offlexion than at present and therefore the order of words in the sentence was more free. He had a dual number for pronouns, four declines for the names and two adjectives, and gender variance. Verb conjugation had only two periods: the present, which also acquired the value of this Profuturo, and the past. She was a flexible language for the composition of words because his vocabulary was limitedand, together with morphological procedure for the creation of neologisms, adopted and made numerous loans from the languages they lived and was related. Therefore it is evident the influence of Celtic substratum, although the investigation stands at 10% common names from this source. Other Celtic remains are believed to have come from the Welsh, Scots or Scottish Gaelic.
