But that’s not what you originally said, so you are now moving the goalposts again?
Not surprising, I wonder how many holes you can actually dig before you admit your stupidity
You statement did not include the ”spread of the English Language”, if you can remember as far as yesterday,(and hundreds of other days for the last 2 years) you said, that English “originated” in England and that the English language belonged solely (your words) to English people
So once again you are a proven liar, you really must be a true and devout christian to lie so blatantly and not feel any embarrassment
The truth always prevails, no matter what. That has always been my stand. British and American English, have connections, and it was started by the English and the English in America.

Wrong. Yes they are solely English. They spread their language through colonialism and conquest.

Here is some latin for you:

Homo heidelburgensis
Homo erectus
Australopithecus sedibus
Australopithecus afarensis

Latin rules, as does evolution.

English is just pig German with some French baked on.

Clown, do some research about the American and Australian Histories. ENGLAND was the cultural founders of these countries.

So, there is a link between British(the mother language), and that of their American and Australian counterparts. You lose again.

I cannot resist.

If all the English one day left England, and settled in say China, would they still be the people who own English according to you?

And if that is the case, then those who left England 400 to 100 years ago settling in America and Australia and so on, also took their ownership of their mother tongue with them.

So Americans today own English just as rightfully as the English who stayed behind. In fact linguists will inform you that their American dialect is actually CLOSER to the English as it was spoken 400 years ago than what the modern English speak today. And since there are 330 million North Americans including Canadians who speak English as their first language, but only 50 million Englishmen, then its obvious that America has inherited the majority ownership of the language by a factor of six to one.

Given all this, your whole premise is not merely wrong, its just nonsensical.

So, whether Australian or American English, England and the offsprings from England, gave birth to the other forms of English known to you.

Irony. You are the IDIOT. Britain is just a union between the Scots, welsh, and English. If they break up today, that term w6uld be history.

You don’t seem to have much ideas of the term nation do you?
As for clamouring, I think you have been reading too many supermarket tabloids.
Actually the current forecast for the Scottish referendum is No and after all it is up to the people of Sciotland to decide, not the great god charlie idiot
As to why Alex Salmond is pushing for independence, it could be that he considers that they will be better of with the pound as currency, no hang on a moment, they already have the pound. So perhaps he thinks they will be better of claiming north sea oil as there own, no wait a moment North Sea Oil was developed using british money and independent international banks and oil companies. The only claim they have to it is the oil terminals on the east cost of Scotland. So perhaps he thinks that they would be better off with the Euro, no hang on a moment, the EU has something to say on that score and a new independent Scotland would not meet the criteria
So you got me, why?
Wrong. No matter how you paint it, England and Scotland, can never be the same, despite the union.

So you are saying that all babies are born with the ability to speak English??? Wow, I knew you were a few bricks short of a bungalow but I never realise you were that stupid.
You really must be christian, using the word truth like that with a straight face.
To be honest you should have replaced the leading t with a capital T then we would have known the meant what sounds like Truth to you rather that the real meaning of the word.
As long as you are born from a Scottish parents, you are Scottish by origin even though you were born in England.

Methinks you have not thought this one out properly (as with so many more of your posts)
Did you mean Breton, Alsatian, Comtois, Romande, Occitan, Provençal, Basque or more, I know of around 40 distinct languages spoken in France, my own village street names are shown in both Official French and Occitan
But the official French Language is controlled by government, I believe they even have a government department to oversee it
No such controls exist for English
So using French as an example is a particularly good indicator of your ignorance.
Whether control or not, English as a language was first spoken in England.
