Before the age of major emigration (about the 1600's or so), which countries actually spoke the historical language that evolved over time to be known as modern English?

Everyone God damn knows that it's only called English because that's what the English do. They take **** that doesn't belong to them and plant a ****ing flag on it.

English is a "Germanic" language or w/e, the essence of this language was brought by the anglo-saxon tribes. Go read up on it.

That was a good 1500 or so years ago (my history in that period is pretty hazy).
Over the course of that many years, the language evolved into what we all know today as English. This language spread to other nations because Britain colonised them. If you remove all the countries that have ever been a British colony, how many countries in the world actually speak English?

English is the language that was evolved in England. Through multiple reasons, it spread to a good proportion of the world and consequently, these people have formed their own dialect of English. Words such as: sidewalk, period and candy are examples of American English. In England these words are: pavement, full stop and sweets.

The actual language known as English evolved in England and spread throughout the world. Until there is a real, major difference between American English and "standard" English, they are both still English. American English is just a dialect of it.

yada yada yada,

The actual language known as Germanic evolved in many countries and different dialects were formed, nowadays we call these dialects German, Dutch, English, Norwegian, etc.

Bunch of noobcakes here lol, language is dynamic.

I have to disagree with Lotak in one respect....
Pavement is still readily used in US English, merely referring to that type of concrete used for roads and parking lots, etc. Anything that is "paved" with that form of material. A sidewalk is specific to the area made to the side of roads for pedestrians to walk on, out of the way of cars.

On a side note, did you know that even with sidewalks, Chinese still refuse to use them when there is a perfectly good road there to walk in?
I still firmly believe that the book I eventually write will lead to the betterment of Chinese children, if for nothing else than the important lesson of "Do not walk in the road. Cars will kill you." The Chinese just don't have enough fear of things in their lives like is taught in Western upbringing. We are definitely taught that cars will kill us, so we don't want to walk near them. They hold this belief that the cars will always magically go around them, so they can walk anywhere they like.

This.

English contains elements of Latin and French as well as Germanic tongues like Saxon and Old Norse. Old or even Middle English bears little resemblance to Standard English as it is taught and spoken today.

English is part of the Indo European language family, which are posited to have all evolved from an original common "mother" tongue that certain root words can still be traced too by philologists.

An individual language doesn't STOP evolving until it's dead.

Latin is dead, new words, or meanings to older ones no longer are added, grammar and pronounciation do not change. Latina est mortis.

New words, meanings and structures are still being added to the English tongue every year, and many of them will eventually be accepted as Standard English. Brittanicus vivit.

Compare evolution of language with evolution of man.
I don't know much about evolution, but I do know that its kind of like a family tree in reverse. Starting point which evolves into one species, which evolve into 3 similar, but non-identical species based on conditions........which evolve into man.
Whilst human beings are similar in some respects to (say) the ape, humans are not apes even though they share a common ancestor.
In the same respect, whilst English is similar to (say) German, English is not German even though they shared a common language.

Whilst English and German have similarities, they are not the same language. I think the fact that they shared a common language (old Germanic tongue) is pretty arbitrary. Over the course of (say) 1500, the language of these two respective countries evolved so much, that one person from one country cannot understand what one person from the other country is saying.

A person speaking English cannot have a coherent, understanding conversation with a person speaking German. HOWEVER, a person speaking Australian English CAN have a coherent, understanding conversation with a person speaking American English.

English, Dutch, Norwegian and German may have shared a common language how ever many years ago, but they aren't the same at all.
That would be almost the same as saying that because humans, apes, monkeys, chimps etc... shared the same ancestor, they are the same.

The language of English evolved in England and was spread throughout the world. That makes the English the people that "created" the English language.

Americans won the war, and Noah Webster conquered the English language for us.

English is entirely American in origin.

Quit being butthurt over something that happened 200+ years ago, Britain.
