              in fairness to our ""french"" siss, it’s actually ~15% according to most studies (though there was a conscious effort in renaissance france to ‘de-germanize’ the tongue)
              but 1.5%? that’s even more embarrassing anyway lmao

          Using this and using graph
          We know that the top 57 words in the English language should ALL be Germanic which means at the very least 40% of words occurring in any given text are Germanic.

          Icelandic is very archaic and alien-sounding, even to Scandinavians.
          Swahili and Malay probably coincidentally share traits with English or have simple grammar (which is an English trait).

            I know it is, but the fact that it is a Germanic language means that it has alot in common with English. And if you compare it with the languages it is paired up with like Khmer, Tibetan, Filipino, Hebrew, etc., aswell as the ones in III, it isn’t that alien-sounding.
            >even to Scandinavians.
            Eh, for Scandinavians, especially for Norwegians, I reckon that it’s one of the easiest languages to learn. Atleast II, probably I.

              A quick glance at the Malay wikipedia page tells me that it has a similar phonology to English (with some other phonemes that Anglos are familiar with like [x]) and simple grammar.
              Swahili not so much. Idk why US diplomats find it easy.

              Icelandic has preserved a number of older features either dropped by English, or replaced by contact with other languages. It doesn’t have much in common with English and both developed off completely seperate brances of Germanic for that matter (English deriving from West Germanic, and Icelandic from North Germanic), they’re not intelligible, and their syntax isn’t related either.
              >Source or stfu.
              Indo-Malay (there are slight variations depending on which version you learn), is notoriously simple for an Asian language. They lack verb conjugation, they aren’t tonal, and it’s a syllabic language.
              As for Swahili, it’s also relatively easy, owed to being a standardized lingua franca of a region. It became commonly spoken in it’s area because it was easy and simple.

        people are just too scrotebrained to learn the script isn’t it? At least Chinese is one of the easiest languages I have ever studied by a large margin, the only slightly hard thing are the tones.

          Yeah Chinese is due to the script and tones.
          Arabic is because it’s a Semitic language + has extremely autistic grammar and morphology (unlike Hebrew and Amharic which are Semitic but orange on the map).

        That’s because English dropped the case system that German uses. Otherwise, German vocabulary is very easy for an English speaker.

      English word usage is mostly Germanic. The vast majority of Latin words are not commonly used, and redundant to the Old English vocabulary. The reason why most English literature is heavily Old English in origin is because virtually all the core grammar words are Old English. The pronouns, the prepositions, pretty much all the essential verbs (is, to be, etc).

      People like OP don’t know anything about linguistics though.

      A language’s classification is determined by its genetic (linguistically) origin, nothing else. English is derived from West Germanic, therefore it is Germanic.
      Japanese is not Chinese just because 60% of its vocab is Chinese derived

      But about English – it’s true. 2/3 of the vocabulary is Romance and less than a third is Germ.
