You are fighting a lost battle.You're changing the goalposts, Charles. We were talking about *English*, not "Modern English".
*English* includes *Old English*.
To answer the question of where *English* originated, you have to answer the question of where *Old English* originated.
That's the question you keep avoiding, Charles. That's why you keep moving the goalposts.
The question isn't relevant.
In the history of football or soccer, the old football is never taken seriously, except the modern one.
The same with English language, it is the modern English we are speaking today and not any old English.
Modern English is native to England, despite the many other influences from other languages.
