2019-07-18 21:21
all the aristocratic vocabulary military, legal and religious date from this period and testify to the influence of French. The Anglo-Saxon language, derived from the old German, was not written, and was very rural. So when the Normans arrived with new concepts of culture, art, government organization, the French words were used because they didn’t exist in German at the time.
2019-07-18 21:27

wtf english comes from latin? english came from a germanic language, and got heavy french influence from french. our base grammar is all germanic in origin but like 60-70% of our lexicon is of latin origin

By pride, the English prefer to speak of a Latin influence. But when they say “animal”, “fruit” or “village”, it is French. To say that it is Latin is to say that French does not exist
2019-07-18 21:29
i got the stats out no need to worry
2019-07-18 21:35
thanks mon ami but he's to pride to admit it
2019-07-18 21:37
According to one study, the percentage of modern English words derived from each language group are as follows: Latin (including words used only in scientific / medical / legal contexts): ~29% French (Latin): ~29% Germanic: ~26% Others: ~16%
2019-07-18 21:32
A survey by Joseph M. Williams in Origins of the English Language of 10,000 words taken from several thousand business letters gave this set of statistics: French (langue d'oïl): 41% "Native" English: 33% Latin: 15% Old Norse: 5% Dutch: 1% Other: 5%

You guys do realise french itself comes from a variant of latin from the roman empire. BOTH english and french come from latin, just different variants of the same language..... The only difference is england spoke Anglo-Latin back in the day whilst french comes from gaulic latin. Saying english comes from french IS saying that english comes from latin. ALSO the language of Gaul ALSO had influences from the celts, who back then where the british basicly, AND the germanic Franks. Bitch idg a shit about Britain, i hold no loyalty to the country, I was raised abroad my whole life, but the french acting all high and might about dumb shit like this, acting like they inveted everything amazing since humans evolved pisses me off. stfu
2019-07-19 02:49
so much retardness OH MY GOD English is a GERMANIC language that was influence by latin first (30%) and then french during the conquer of britain (1066) you made a stupid point saying nobody is making you speak french and i corrected it by saying your language was transformed MAINLY by french and not the other way around yikes

bruh you literly ignored my whole commet LOL BOTH our languages come from Latin. French isnt the origin LATIN is. You have 0 claim over SHIT all. These words all originate from Places other than Frence Medicine - Latin - Medicus (A physician) History - Ancient Greece - Historia (Inquiry) Comment - Latin - comminisci (devise) Context - Latin - Contextus (joining together) You are so fucking thick, and chatting out of your ass. None of those words have an origin from the French language, they have been around since the roman times. The French adopted those words from previous cultures that invaded the french (which you should be used to by now), then the british adopted them aswell because the SAME people came to Britainia. Yall stupid as fuck
2019-07-19 14:35
France is and always was Britain's bitch stfu lol. Even when we're on the same side you surrender and count on us to bail you out. Shit country, shit history.
2019-07-19 03:26
never forget 1066 atleast we have never been entirely occupied by you lol you are even using french words in your sentence because of it HAHA "count" "history''
2019-07-19 03:30

That's because no other country would dare fight Britain, due to their global domination from 1815-1914 dubbed the 'Imperial Century'. Truly glamarous times.
2019-07-18 20:02
??????????? Actually just don't know history.
2019-07-18 20:06
Practically all of their conquered regions were against countries with inferior technology, perhaps "fought" wasn't the correct war. They never engaged in large land based combat against other European powers for land, perhaps outside of wars against the Spanish and French mostly in North America. Most of their conquest is disproportionate to how much fighting they had to do.

Yes the countrys they took were behind, but they wernt just fighting those countries FOR EXAMPLE in India, they were fighting local resistance AND the french, WITH spanish support.
2019-07-18 20:48
Most French resistance seemed to be in North America to protect their fur trapping trade. There wasn't much French resistance by comparison in India and Africa.

2019-07-18 21:06
What? Where did I say that? I said there was less in comparison to North America, which there was, that's historical fact. I'm well aware of the French East India Company and French attempts to colonize India.

yes, but thats like saying that germans attacks on england were less than on russia. Like no shit, The north American UK/French/Spanish wars were massive. The french/spanish vs british wars were ALSO massive. You see, just because one is smaller than the other, doesnt mean its small, it can still be big.
2019-07-18 21:23
Dude come on, the closest the French and British got to a full blown war in India was the French and Indian War, wasn't even in India, and was largely in North America and Europe.

Secured the silk road, and so increasing trade between west and east and so increasing wealth and knowledge of both side (Venice or Genova for exemple). Created rules to protect women Unified China Created the Pax Mongolica under which people were way more safer than ever before (and after) Etc

People actually put the mongol empire, the one that fell apart right after Gengis Khan died. The best empires lasted for centuries and had a true lasting impact on society. 1. Rome (Literally the bedrock of nearly all European nations languages and lasted for over a 1000 years) 2. British Empire 3. Whatever Chinese dynasty I think the Han are the best one 4. Spanish Empire 5. Idk mens maybe France or Portugal. You could actually put the USSR here or America is you believe it has a “Empire” I guess.

2019-07-18 19:22
I've mentioned it. Their best time deserves top5 but after 18th century is shit
2019-07-18 19:25
What have they built? What influence do they have nowadays? Any good ideology that came from Ottoman empire? Nice inventions? Tell me, I am not trying to offend you. I just do not know
2019-07-18 19:26
What did Mongols or Spanish built? Ottomans bring cannons and rifles to Europe and literally caused renaissance
2019-07-18 19:28
Ottomans caused the Renaissance? How brainwashed can you be to say that? LMAO THEY LITERALLY Followed 7th century laws which disallowed inventions, change of system and new implementations until their fall. Now I know you are baiting. I thought you were a decent user
2019-07-18 19:30
I meant not directly. After conquer of Istanbul, Byzantine scientists/artists escaped to Italy and studied on old Latin research. Ottomans(especially Mehmet II) also invited scientist from Anatolia/Persia to study in Istanbul and helped them economically, lots of subjects in Maths and Astronomy were found by these scientist. But that was (again) empire's best time only, after 17th century most of Sheik-ul Islams(minister that makes decisions if Ottoman policies/inventions are against the Islam or not) denied European inventions because that way people would remain illiterate and would not riot against Sheik-ul Islam.
2019-07-18 19:39
That is one reason for the Renaissance. If there were any catalyst for the Renaissance, it'd be the fall of Constantinople, but to solely attribute the Renaissance purely to the Ottomans is a bit silly. I think it'd have happened either way, but maybe a bit later.
2019-07-18 20:05
Tbf from my study of the Romans they weren't great inventors either dude. At best some stronger concrete, improvements on the arch, greater engineering techniques related to domes and aqueducts, better calendar, etc... Even their religion was basically copied from the Greeks.
2019-07-18 19:41
Their influence is much bigger than just building stuff dude.
2019-07-18 19:50
Most empires of antiquity just thought of Rome as another strong empire, not some global superpower, even Parthia wasn't particularly intimidated by them considering how Crassus was treated after his idiotic defeat at Carrhae.
2019-07-18 20:32
Nah, you should dig deeper in that. Don't just look at some battles or some stories that happened. The Roman Empire and it's successor the Byzantine Empire were the reasons Europe wasn't invaded by Muslims or some bigger threat because a lot of the small countries (compared to the invaders) stood as one at the face of the enemy. How so? Well, the answer is simple, they didn't destroy the Christian religion. They could but they didn't. Also both the Roman and the Byzantine Empires were multicultural and multinational - this especially in the early periods of the Byzantine Empire was very crucial because the Emperor wasn't the one who inherited this title because his father was an Emperor but the Emperor was the man who deserved it the most. Christianity, as the history has proven it, has led the Western European countries to the top of the ladder. Innovations, influence, education, culture, respect. Don't get me wrong, I do not believe in God but what is true is true.
2019-07-18 20:59
The Romans hated the Christians and they were often blamed for random things they didn't do and were thrown into the Colosseum. The Byzantine Empire adopted Christianity much later.
2019-07-18 21:00
I count the Byzantine Empire as Romans as well and also both of the Empires adopted it at the same time And yes, Constantine the Great saw the opportunity and did an awesome job by allowing it.
2019-07-18 21:03
Alright? That doesn't discount the hundreds of years of persecution, not sure how you call the Romans the protectors of Christianity. Throughout history the Byzantine empire was often surrounded on all sides by Muslim Empires, they often didn't protect anything. For large parts of their history they just sat behind their massive walls until they saw an opportunity to expand again. It was central Europeans if anything that prevented the Muslim expansion into Europe during that time.
2019-07-18 21:06
Mongol Empire collapsed after gengis Death?? lol Hell no! Mongol empire collapsed after the death of Kublai Khan, 70 years after the death of Genghis Khan. Genghis was the first Mongol emperor and Kublai the fifth and last.

How does the USSR get first when they had at best about 30 years of prosperity. They had to adopt the NEP in the 30's to help recover their failing economy, abandoned it and grew under a new government ran policy, but by the late 70s were drastically losing the growth they once had. Sure, the US really fucked them in the 90s, but they were barely a few decades off economic stagnation anyway. A country that doesn't participate in trade stagnates. That's hardly a sign of a good "empire". British, Mongol and Spanish are all solid choices though. Rome would have to be up there for it's time.

lul pathetic north sea empire that lasted 19 years according to the most biased sources
2019-07-18 20:07
Greatest in terms of what? Influence? Power? Size? Because those are all much different lists. The Romans, for example, are probably one of the overall greatest empires but not one of the largest
2019-07-18 19:25
The Romans were pretty overrated tbh. Lasted around 400 years if you don't count the Republic era, struggled to maintain their borders against nomadic tribes, weren't the greatest by wealth either, etc... I think the reason people look up to the Romans is all the infrastructure projects they left behind and their innovations to engineering. The impact of those can easily by felt today unlike most empires from that era.
2019-07-18 19:50
That doesn't make the Romans overrated. You have to count the Republic era imo. They were extremely dominate in their time and they didn't just fall to nomadic tribes, they fell chiefly to infighting; such as hiring the Vandals to sack Alexandria, but then one group gaining power and purposely not paying them to make the other group look bad in which the Vandals then sacked Roman colonies in retribution. They did not have the greatest wealth in terms of gold, but their resources far trounced any other empire at their time save for those in Arabia. But the main thing that makes them one of the greatest empires of all time is their influence. It's not just in engineering and architecture. It's in technology, law, social aspects, celebrations, art. In fact, one of the only influences that lacks from the Roman Empire is in music, since their only real music were military based or more like dirges for somber celebrations. Even there, however, a lot of marching music is based heavily on the Romans. The Romans took one of the other most influential empires of all time, the Greeks, and advanced practically everything that empire introduced whilst introducing much more.
2019-07-18 19:57
The British were definitely the most influential dude, it's the world's default language because of the global power and influence of the the British during their peak. I'm well aware of the infighting between generals and the corruptions issue in the Roman empire towards the end. That's largely the fault of the empire relying on tribal generals and soldiers instead of real Roman generals and Roman soldiers. The Roman Empire was well in decay for 400 AD, this is pretty clearly shown by the Crisis of Third Century. Rome wasn't even in contention for greatest empire anytime after 300 AD. Most empires of the time, including those in Arabia just thought of Rome as another empire and weren't incredibly intimidated by them. An example of this is the treatment of Crassus after his idiotic defeat at the Battle of Carrhae. Lots of great empires had advanced legal systems, social aspects, celebrations, etc... Those aren't really that impressive when determining what's one the greatest empires in history. And the greatest Roman art is often just sculptures and buildings, they weren't great painters and their mosaic tiles weren't massively impressive for that time or whatever you're thinking of.
2019-07-18 20:41
Roman empire lasted a thousand years after republic, when the western capital (roma) fell and the eastern side became Byzantine empire that 500 years later would fall to the Ottomans.

I think people are getting locked up on most powerful empires being who dominated the most land like England. I think the US should be in the equation because you would have to be pretty naive to think the US couldn't take over most of Africa and Asia without outside interference which didn't happen back in the day. A lot of these smaller nations are lucky that the US is the first dominant power to not focus on gaining more land.

Most of those were gobbled up in what I define as "back in the day". It's pretty recent that most western countries stopped focusing on colonization and expansion. Also, Alaska was purchased.

i don't see how that hinders you anymore than any other empire in history has been hindered by other powers
2019-07-18 20:50
Eh, it is a decent hinder when markets are so closely tied to each other. The US wouldn't collapse, but most of EU cutting off trade with the US for the US doing something like colonizing some country wouldn't feel good. It would hurt both sides, so maybe nothing would come from it. You never know. The US is mainly focused on political influence now. Regardless of what people think there hasn't been a superpower with the political pull of the US in history. If the Roman empire told some empire far away to do something they would get a "lol, fuk u" in response. Today if the US told the UK to slap themselves they would.
2019-07-18 20:53
Let's take England as an example. If England went down to Africa and started colonizing a nation when they were dominant what would happen? There wouldn't really be any backlash politically, economically, or from rivals such as France. France would have mainly just mark it up as a loss and look towards a different area. Now you're looking at economic backlash even though some nation in Africa has no relevance to the main powers.

Das Deutsche Kaiserreich The only Empire that could really challenge Britain during its century of domination (other than the U.S., but they obviously were more cordial), would've been interesting to see how Imperialism would've developed if Germany won WW1, which they were definitely capable of doing. Also a very impressive empire in its own right, with many military achievements notably beating Napoleon's pathetic heir, which is kind of ironic considering the historical context of Germany.

I am better than you, in every facet of life, and I don't even know you, however, I just know that I am. Also, we aren't bro's. If anything, you are someone I assign less value and worth than my own feces. Your life has no value, and you will make no contribution to this world, in your entire life, because of your low intelligence, and lack of skills. How does that feel, you fucking bottom denominator. go back to your vegan subreddit to fill your useless void of a life, pretending it means anything. Am I a narcisst? I don't know, I am a fucking God. I will, do, and have succeded in every facet of life. I have done more, in this year alone, than you will have achieved before you leave this world. .. let that sink in. You have no fucking clue who you are talking to. I am so vastly superior, and intelligent, that I can infer all of this with 100% accuracy. You are like a fucking ant, and I am a GOD. You do not even fly on my radar, let alone get acknowledgement, from the likes of me. I know you can sense my superiority, my power, my intelligence,and you are trying to pretend you don't feel it, it's real. To conclude, go back to fucking yourself, you meaningless water-trash bottom feeding peasant.
2019-07-19 03:29
Imagine having the IQ to rationalize your motive as contributing to the world. Why contribute to the world, when the world never contributes to you? Oh wait you don't contribute to the world that's just something you made up to justify you're uselessness. In your stupidity you forget that America is not an empire by the definition of the word, America is a nation an empire is a union of conquered or annexed nations brought under the subjugation of one nation. There are no nations within the USA tribes with sticks don't count. I have a mensa iq so please don't anguish me with your superiority. I sense a copy pasta and 0/8 bait however. Enjoy your miserable life copy pasting things on the internet. Unless of course you are actually serious in that case I would say that the fact that you are delusional enough to think that you are better than me, while also knowing nothing about who am I indicates that you are in fact not very well off. I would love to hear what you have done this year if you can muster the time to explain.

"an empire is a union of conquered or annexed nations " EU brain lul. That's what the US is.

ahaha You have to be baiting. You seem to forget that once those nations and people groups are killed in mass which they were which I would know because I live in California and the libtards never cease to remind us. The nation that they inhabited ceases to exist when theyre all dead. So yes USA is a nation not an empire.

so i study history and here is mine: 1. British - as it was the biggest one and the closest one to world domination 2. Roman - as it was the first real imperial empire and, other than alexanders, held a long time with a long time of peace for the people in the "inner" roman empire 3/4. USA - the post-war USA was just so important for the world that they literally controlled one part of the world 3/4. USSR - same for them 5. Mongol - as it is insane how strong these guys were and how they literally rolled over all their enemies worth mentioning: portugese, spanish, chinese, alexander, persian, hittites, inka, 2nd french colonial empire, early medieval caliphats (most notably abbasid and ummayad) most of them are probably not in the top 5 cause i just dont know too much about them so i probably oversee a lot lets discuss folks /edit: after 5 more minutes awake i moved the mongols to 5

But in the short time he helmed it, he had never lost a battle. 2. Roman (For obvious reasons) 3. British (For obvious reasons) 4. Irrelevant
