Researchers led by Professor Mark Pagel at the University of Reading have just published a report which finds that Indo-European languages came from a common root, about 15,000 years ago.

Using statistical models, the professor has traced back a common root of all Indo- European languages to a proto-language that was probably spoken about 15,000 years ago and has formed the common root for about 7 language families today; language families which include modern day Turkish, Uzbek and Mongolian in the Altaic family, Chukchi-Kamchatkan, spoken in northeastern Siberia, Dravidian, spoken in Southern India, Inuit-Yupik spoken in the Arctic, Kartvelian, which evolved into Georgian, and Uralic, which is the mother of Finnish and Hungarian, and of course, most other European languages, too.

<quoted text> Ok Dude. But we are all claiming origin's from different parts of the earth, and not from England. Now my question, why is English not native to those places, except in England and the other places influenced by England?
actually the Normans had a big influence on the English words we use today.

<quoted text> The same with all world languages. But no matter the influences, English can never be Greek, Latin, or French. That is the reason why the command of the English language, still rest in the hands of the people of England and those places its inhabitants influenced.
If this were so there would not be so many different dialects and interpretations of the English language.

Or perhaps you can explain why there is US English, Australian English, New Zealand English, Caribbean English, Irish English etc… etc… etc, that all reside alongside British English actually exist at all?

The command of the English language rest’s in no ones hands. There is no body to oversee the command of the English language.

<quoted text> As long as Latin, Greek, and French, as well as others, are not English in any way or in any sense, you are just barking. The command of the language does not rest on those nations, you claimed, originated English, but rest on England and its inhabitants world wide.
The English language “ORIGINATED” as a mishmash of the language you state, and others. The command of the English language rest’s in no ones hands, see above. I have never claimed “originated”, you claimed originated and that was the basis of the whole argument that has now gone on for over a year. So do not try shrugging your shoulders and shifting your goalposts to my side of the field, what you have written is evidence of your stance. Be a man and abide by your original position.
Charles Idemi wrote:
<quoted text> Idiot. English is still very strange to the Greeks, the French, and the people of Latin, despite the fact that they originated the Language, why?
Say what?

OYG (oh your god)

Wonders will never cease

Did I see you say “despite the fact that they originated the Language”, here let me check… Yes those are your exact words. You now admit that the English language originated of Greek, French, Latin (and Germanic and other) languages.

Thank you at last, my point is made, this discussion is over

You have listened to my view for over a year so it seems that your advice is particularly hypocritical.

And now, when you have eventually conceded my point (see above) you have to rant in ignorance.

Variants of the English exist throughout the world, it is NOT unique to England.

It could be that as you did not know the meaning of the word “originated” you may also be unaware of the meaning of the word “unique”

You can educate yourself on Google by searching for the term “define unique”

Oh that’s great… As my posts clearly indicate, you were the one who repeatedly mocked and lied about the French influence in the English language, I was simply responding to you goad. Had you mocked the German or Dutch languages my response would have been similar.
More wet dreams, what gives you the impression I am angry, Oh I get it, it’s because a woman won’t fall down and worship the very words you vomit your misogynistic intolerance of anything that wears panties become dominant – right?
Do you think you will soon be ranting on about menstruation and female mood swings?
How did I lie, goad about or mock the French language? The Academie Francaise IS inventing French words to replace English technical terms, English DID evolve in England and you ARE a francophile. As for being an irrational and irascible feminist, if you want to excuse your attitude on hormones, fine.

The language may have many words from many places but the very beginning may be hard to describe. The Bible speaks of an early language of Canaan which is a Semitic language and the original speakers of it emigrated to Carthage and beyond. The Greeks and Phoenicians rendered the name Kna'an, the Egyptians knew it as Kn'nw and Kyn'nw and the Assyrians rendered the name Kinnahu. This lineage from Ham is most likely where English came from in the first place.

Hey Pagan, why you take a look at this Divinity program at Cornell
Haters are going to Hate
I don't think the Methodist Church is pagan, but whatever you want to believe to get to sleep at night.

They don't have a divinity program at Cornell in New York state. Religious studies do not produced ordained ministers. They study the philosophy, origins and comparisons of religions.

It isn't a matter of "how universities operate." Are you claiming that Cornell University's liberal arts program is a seminary and/or divinity school?

It is clear you never went to a university. OBI doesn't count as an education and it is just a pseudo-high school.

Ok i think evolution is a cool idea but even if i wasn't brought up in a religious home id never believe it we lack to much evidence to even consider that theory. at this point there i no observable evidence, and although some may say natural selection is proof of evolution its not, actually most christians and other various religions believe in and agree with natural selection. So as far as im aware science has given no observable proof that is 100% backed up by fact to prove evolution.

Here lies the problem.... As far as you know.
That isn't very far , because evolution IS an observation.

Then there is so much that you are not aware of.

Evolution is supported by observable evidence and the occurrence has long since been accepted in science.
