As a French I'd say French is the most germanic language of the romance language fam and english is the most romance language of the germanic language fam.

Probably true, although the Celtic influence on French is even bigger.

@Melange ASMR En gros pour résumer, les gaulois sont là tranquille quand soudains les romains arrives, la société gallo-romaines s'établis jusqu'à être en paix quand soudains les Francs arrives. Quelques années se passent et paf la langue Française comme on la connais apparait. On a des mots gaulois, latin et germain dans notre langue. XD

Have you ever read the paper English: The Language of the Vikings by Joseph Emonds and Jan Faarland? They argue that old English died out, and what we speak now is actually a descendant of North Germanic dialects not West Germanic and therefore modern English should be reclassified as North Germanic. Whether you agree with it or not it's a very interesting read! (If you're not into 200 page essays though you can find summaries of it lol). anyway, sorry for the rant, this is a great video! I came here for the history first and then stayed to help me fall asleep!! your voice is super comforting!

Came here for the ASMR, stayed for the ASMR and for abundance of knowledge you share. I know this sounds cliché, but I don't understand how your channel isn't much bigger already.

The English creole language hypothesis I always thought was very cool. I am certianly no linguist but Enlgish seems to have changed the most in its history compared to other related languages, and German and latin, the two languages with the most influence, also seem so foreign. The accent is completely different as well and its impossible to match similar accents to French and German, Granted I am American. But I always thought looking at the English language as this creole was cool. It is interesting the British Isles are this historical melting pot of so many language influences despite being an island sitting off the northwest corner of Europe.

@Spirit of the Mountain I dont think anyone is trying to debase the English language, I was just thinking out loud about history. I think its interesting and I thought it would be nice to share a comment on my thoughts even if they are most likely wrong. No need to get upset about it
Campbell

@mattert14 Yes you are almost certainly right, but its an interesting thought as the English language, at least on its surface, sounds so much different than its neighboring and most related languages
Spirit of the Mountain
English simply has loanwords from other languages, that doesn’t dislodge it from its Germanic roots. What is with this ugly obsession over trying to debase English?
mattert14
mattert14 3 aylar önce
@Melange ASMR It's a nice sound hypothesis, but one that doesn't have evidence to back it. Creoles form from a pidgin language, a simplified version of multiple languages formed with there is a mass migration and a sudden need for communication, and consist of a superstrate (the prestige language) and a substrate (the non-prestige languages) Pidgins lack consistent grammar that would define it as a language. The most well-known example would be when Europeans brought slaves over to the new world. Pidgins can become full-fledged languages when the speakers, usually the children, start to use it with consistent grammatical structures. There isn't much evidence this happened in English. Instead, English was heavily influenced by other languages. A large percentage of the lexical words (the vocabulary) in English are from Romance languages while a large percentage of the grammatical words (the words that make it function) are Germanic.
Melange ASMR

It is a really interesting theory! I can't judge how likely it is either but even as a thought experiment, it's a fascinating explanation why English is so easy to learn at first. And yeah, the way it sits between French and German is so odd. With some vocabulary, the relation to Germanic languages is so obvious, like water - Wasser. But then when it comes to grammar and sentence structures, I find it much easier to translate between French and English rather than English and German. Haha yeah, maybe that's why people were forced to talk each other, because they couldn't just walk off the island.

Hey, I'm glad you liked it, thank you! And yeah, the details are a bit odd. I don't know if this is a simplified version of the circles - I haven't read the original text - but the construct itself was a neat new approach to categorizing different kinds of English.

I think one of the cooler things about English is how it’s the most widely spoken languages when you account for non-native speakers, yet it’s only number 4 (iirc) in terms of first language speakers. Still a lot, but it shows how the world has changed. For me I always thought it made sense that English was popular as a second language, but after seeing the stats I felt validated that I wasn’t being unscientific. I’ve spoken with friends from Finland, Germany, Netherlands, Bulgaria, Iraq, UAE, India, as well as Mexico, Brazil, and then anglophone countries like Australia, Canada, New Zealand the UK. It’s expected for me for the last set, but when I was younger I was blown away by hearing it from people from all the first ones.

Very true! In certain contexts, the overwhelming majority of interactions carried out in English happens between non-native speakers, which is pretty impressive. I think around here, there is an underlying assumption by now that everyone has a certain level of English - and for a lot of people that's certainly true, but it can cause some difficulties too.
OllieOllieOxenfreeASMR
Oh and if it matters at all; your English is quite good. I don’t think I’ve ever had a complaint about it except for words that can’t be translated from German anyway.

I came here from another ASMR page (not sure which) and never left. I have difficulties falling asleep and due to not being able to use melatonin, that did help a bit, these videos help to get the boost to fall asleep and actually better as i stay asleep, where melatonin i woke up after a few hours. The topics are interesting and i watch them many times at different times to get the relaxation but also getting the lesson in full at some point 😆 It is also a fun thought that from your voice and hands etc i have a picture of what i think you might look like and it is probably not even remotely close to the truth, but i can kinda see "you" speaking when i watch 😄 I wish you an ever growing channel and following for the benefit of us all 😊

That was fascinating, and your voice is beautiful. I was a little surprised that the Roman invasion didn't significantly alter the language too.
hir-iaith

The Latin language was brought to Britain by the Romans, who arrived and left before the English language arrived. So the Roman invasion did alter "the language", but the language that was spoken in Britain when they invaded, not English.
Melange ASMR
Melange ASMR 4 aylar önce
Thank you, Jamie, I appreciate it! Latin has had a big influence on English, but that came later, primarily from its use as lingua franca of church and science. From what I understand, the Vulgar Latin that was used in Roman England was only spoken by an elite (similar to the case in France) and got replaced once the Anglo-Saxons arrived and brought Old English with them.

I know Ireland is small, but population is similar enough to New Zealand so not sure why it's been excluded from the circles. English is co-official as a language too
Marc Thomas
Marc Thomas 2 aylar önce
@Melange ASMR The reason why Ireland isn't included in the traditional anglosphere is because even though English is the dominant and an official language, its Irish government policy to put forward Irish as the national language, hence why we in the rest of the Anglosphere don't include them. Plus they also purposely don't include themselves in Anglosphere politics, agreements, pacts, etc, whilst NZ, UK, US, AUS & CAN do include themselves.

English speakers like to say that English is one of the hardest languages to learn as a second language, which is partially true. It is quite difficult to learn to read/write. It is, however, relatively easy to learn how to speak English. English's relatively simple structure makes it easy to pick up in a conversational way. And that relative simplicity also makes it very forgiving when trying to get one's point across. You might not speak fluently, but you can easily get close enough to be understood.
Melange ASMR
Melange ASMR 2 aylar önce
Yeah, spelling definitely is an issue! I've had someone explain to me that one particularity about English is that it gets more difficult as you progress. So like you said, it's easy to make yourself understood at the start, but if you're aiming for C2, there's more and more irregularities and things like phrasal verbs that you just have to memorize. The comparison at the time was the Russian language which works the opposite way - tons and tons of endings to learn at the start, but once you've mastered that it's quite a regular language. (Not that I ever got that far haha, but I cling to that promise!)

Hi! Just watching this video for about the 100th time. But I was struck that South Africa didn’t make one of the circles! In 1992 they were doing the apartheid referendum so I guess that author was ok to include the defunct USSR but would not touch South Africa. They wouldn’t necessarily be inner circle due to Afrikaans, Xhosa and other languages but outer circle surely??? So interesting how intertwined language and politics are. Thank you!!
Melange ASMR
Melange ASMR 3 aylar önce
Yeah there are a couple of oddities with the circles, like Ireland is missing as well for some reason. I don't have the original source, so I can't tell what the reasoning was or whether this was ever meant to be a complete illustration - maybe everything else was listed in the initial text?? It's a bit weird. And I'm so happy you've watched the video so often, thank you!!! 🥰🥰
