A history of English
The English language we speak today went through three stages called Old English, Middle English and Modern English. But ages before Old English came into being, many other languages had to arise and develop. The oldest of these, as far as we know, was the Indo-European family of languages, which were beginning to be spoken clear back during the Stone Age. During the Stone Age, some Indo-European people lived on the island of Britain. The earliest known of these British IndoEuropean split into two groups called the Scots and the Celts. There was another group, who were not Indo-European, called Picts. Together these three peoples are known as Britons. The Britons were a fierce, Stone Age people constantly making war on each other. They dressed in animal skins, lived in caves or rude wooden huts. These people had their own languages. After conquering all of Europe, Rome invaded Britain and made it part of the empire, in AD
  43. Romans brought their advanced culture to the Britons. Not only did they bring their art, literature, law and Latin language, they established schools, built buildings and roads and provided an army to protect themselves against invaders. Meanwhile, the Germanic peoples of northern Europe, known as "Norsemen" or "Northmen" were developing another, , separate European culture. Some groups of Norsemen came to be known as Angles, Saxons, Jutes and Goths. They were warriors, but also sailors and traders. In very early times the Angles and Saxons began to trade with the Celts in England. This was probably the first time the Britons came into contact with other peoples.

During the four hundred years Britain was part of the Roman Empire, Rome was getting weaker and weaker, and the Norsemen were getting stronger and stronger. By AD 409, Rome had lost all control of Britain. As soon as the Roman armies pulled out of Britain, the Picts and Scots began to destroy the Celts. The Celts turned for help to the Angles and Saxons across the sea in Sweden and Denmark. The latter were quick to respond, because they loved war. They saved the Celts; they also destroyed practically all the culture which had been brought by the Roma: literature, sculpture, schools and roads. The Germanic languages of the Angles and Saxons combined to become Anglo-Saxons. Since the Angles and Saxons had become the power in England, the Anglo-Saxon language became the very early beginning of English. Gradually, between the sixth and eleventh centuries, the feudal estates of Europe give into powerful kingdoms. Of these, the French kingdom of Normandy became very important to the development of English. The various peoples in England were coming together as a nation also, under the rule of more powerful kings such as Alfred the Great, who ruled between 871 and 8
  99. Alfred was not only an efficient ruler and a great defender of his people, he was also an eager scholar. He was able to preserve some of the learning which had been left behind when the Romans left England. In Anglo-Saxon he began a detailed diary of events in his own time known as the Anglo-Saxon Chronicle. Although Alfred encouraged reading and writing in Anglo-Saxon as well as in Latin, most works continued to be written in Latin. Alfred's efforts to unity England and established a national language apart from Latin were interrupted by an invasion of yet another group of Norsemen, the Vikings. The Vikings who invaded England were called Danes, and those who invaded France were known as the Normans. Gradually, as invaders do eventually, the Danes settled down and became peaceful farmers. Their language mixed with AngloSaxon and became what we know as Old English. Old English was established as the language of the land by the tenth century. For the next hundred years or so after the Danish invasions, the English people lived in peace. If they had continued that way our language today might be quite different form what it is; it would be something similar to Dutch, Danish and German. But about nine hundred years ago, English was invaded again, and another, very different language was brought to the country. When this language arrived, English moved away from Danish and Anglo-Saxon and passed form Old English into Middle English. The new foreign language which was to have such an important influence on the development of Middle English was French. In 1066, the Norman French people invaded England. The invasion is known as the Norman Conquest, and it is very important for two reasons. First, it was the last time England was ever to be invaded. Second, Old French became as important an influence as Danish and Anglo-Saxon to the development of English as it is today. The Normans brought their law, custom and literature to England. Since there was still so much Latin in their own language, Latin again began to be swallowed up by a foreign language in the way their Celtic and early Anglo-Saxon ancestors had. Although the invading Norman French became the rulers of the land, and French became the language of government and law in England, the English people stubbornly refused to give up their own language. English remained the spoken language of the people. And when they did accept French words, they mispronounced them so badly that no one could recognize them as French. Eventually, the two language came together to form what we know today as Middle English. The change from Old English to Middle English took place gradually over a period of about hundred years. By the time of Shakespeare's death in 1616, our history and our language had entered the modern period. The English of Shakespeare's time is considered modern English because, except for some different spellings and a few words we no longer use, the language is quite similar to the English we speak today. Many of the old saying we use every day come right out of Shakespeare's writings. When we think something is unimportant we"laugh it off" Describing something which is strong and in good condition, . we say it is "sound as a bell" When we are disgusted with something, we say it is "lousy" If you know or use these expressions . . you are quoting Shakespeare.

Between the sixteenth and nineteenth centuries England built an empire which included North America, some Caribbean islands, Australia, New Zealand, parts of Asia and parts of Africa. About nine or ten years before Shakespeare's death, England had established her first American colony, Virginia. Three hundred years later, England no longer had an empire, but the lands which she had conquered still spoke the English language. Today, English is the native or official language of not only the United States but also Canada, Australia, New Zealand, India, Kenya, South Africa, Trinidad, Jamaica and more lands on every continent of this planet.
