Saxons truly are not from the present day Germany, but they are all Germanic tribes, which gave birth to the present day German, English, Dutch, etc.
English remain a language unique to England.

From your premise, it shows that, you are indeed a clown.
I am not Pakistani. Germanic languages is not German alone but also include English, Danish, etc.

never said otherwise - germanic i wrote - anglish, netherland (the duitse nederen landen - means the german plain lands), denkmark...
allways the same race.
allways the same language.
germanic words with latin pepper
population in anglish.....population or Bevölkerung in german
you don´t have to learn german if you are going to Berlin.
but its not "populeshn" - its "population" without dialect

german is simple because you say what you read.
in anglish sometimes a "i" is a "e" or a "ei" -
like "i am" - or "intel inside" - no logic why "ei am" and "eentel enside"

and no logic, that you are on paky side - be european - be red bull

Get the clue, Tong!
English is a Germanic language just like German, Dutch, Danish, etc.
English was started by the Angles, Saxons, Jutes, etc, in that same mainland Europe, where we presently have Denmark and Germany today.
But for the sake of truth, these Angles, Jutes and Saxons left mainland Europe in large numbers to Britain, that is the reason why there is no English presence in Denmark and Germany today.
So, from this premise, we can successfully conclude that, English started in Britain( England to be precise). Period.

Don't venture into that angle, Buddy.
French( France), German( Germany), Dutch( the Netherlands), etc, are all lovely languages to speak, but English is more universal and acceptable than any of them combined.
That language( English) started in England. Ok, Dully?

Just because a British person has written a book about the Germans does not mean he belittles his own country. It is just a study topic. If a German wrote about Italian art, would this mean he disrespected his own country?
Most British people do not have a problem with having Anglo Saxon roots. My mother’s maiden name (original surname) is Anglo Saxon. This link with Germany is not disputed, or seen as a bad thing. Most people just see it as an historical point of interest.
This debate –‘Which is better – Germany or Britain?’ is not useful or very viable. Both nations have produced many inventions and cultural contributions – how would you meaningfully evaluate them all or their combined impact? What scale of reference would you use, and who would create that scale? I can tell you now it would be debated.
I also don’t think that the British contribution to global culture was ‘very little’ as suggested here. I am not going to go into it at any depth (because I think this is just a slanging match between interested parties). Here are some points: The British started the ‘agricultural revolution’ before the more famous industrial one which you reference. They made great advancements in mechanising farming, improving the land and farming in general. This fed the new big cities and these ideas adopted by others.
Because we had the first trains and fast national transport networks and an empire, we standardised time (GMT – adopted globally). Before then time was local and related to the position of the sun. We discovered longitude, and we mapped (and discovered) much of the word for the first time. Faraday (whose picture was on Albert Einstein’s wall) made electricity available, and GB had the first national power stations, and all that entailed. We produced Alexander Graham Bell re. telecommunications. Logie Baird invented the TV, and I believe the BBC was the first national TV broadcaster. We ran the first underwater cables between nations so we could communicate with them. We had Babbage (the ‘Father of Computing’) and Lovelace, and Berners Lee (Web creator), and we invented the first touch screen technology in the 1960s. Jonathan Ive is the lead designer for Apple and all their popular gadgets and the copies they inspired. So, you wouldn’t be doing this without the British.
Bicameral Westminster is known as ‘the Mother of all Parliaments’ and our system of law and modern democracy has been copied many times all over the world. There’s the Magna Carta – granting freedom under the law. Plus, the Presumption of Innocence -‘innocent until proven guilty’(Sir William Garrow) and Habeas Corpus originated with us. The British Empire had a huge impact on the world. English is the most widely spoken language on the planet and the international language of the air and the sea (for pilots and sea captains). The Queen is still Head of State of various countries, including Canada and Australia, and head of the Commonwealth.
We had Issac Newton and Charles Darwin – before the theory of evolution Europeans thought the world was only 6,000 years old based on the Bible. We created modern antibiotics and anaesthetics, and we were the first to come up with atomic theory … And so on.
The vast majority of world sports were invented by the British. Football is just one. Cricket, tennis and rugby are very popular. Our music is hugely influential.
And there are less of us than there are of you, and we're on an isolated island.
I’m not going to go on any further. However, I would end by saying that in Britain we KNOW the Germans invented lots of stuff and that this stuff was also useful, influential and important. WE don’t have a problem with that. It’s great that both countries can contribute so much and benefit from each other. I find it very odd that you have an issue with this.

Seriously, i was not talking about native brits like you - did you oversee these dimwittet immigrant trolls like india straa and africa idemi, who claim britain invented everything (he claims all of the german inventions for himself too)?
They should read this book, to get an idea of what germany is about to begin with. Little dimwits think Germany dropped out of the sky in 1939.

Thanks Merkel and MrCurious. I came on these message boards because a couple of weeks ago I became curious about the Germans and thought it might be interesting to chat with some via the web - this is why I am on this site. It just seems like a weird battle ground. You get too much 'Let's hate the Germans' stuff - which is totally bizarre. I can now see why you are so upset about that.

I also think that the British are very isolated from mainland Europe because of our history and our closeness to other English speaking countries, and it looks like the Germans are the same with their neighbours and historical partners - which is what you expect.
