I mean, about 50% of English derives from Latin in some form.
@Forced Fornication, English is the result of a continental clusterfvck followed by the most expansive maritime empire in history. You can see the roots of Latin in some words but it would be illegible to any Roman citizen.
@Emp4th, very true, but the construction of the language, it’s sentence format, and base words are of Germanic origin.
@Emp4th, Thus the term "derives."
@Forced Fornication, ~80% of the English dictionary Latin and Greek. An example my classics teacher gave me was if you took out every “little” word (pronouns and conjunctions like and, or, we, they, but, the, etc.) from the Preamble, along with any word that had Latin or Greek roots, you are left with the single word “Welfare”. Realistically the only thing that differentiates English as a Germanic language instead one of descendants of Latin is the syntax and organization of our language. Pronouns and conjunctions are the few remnants of our historical Anglican language that we use on a daily basis.
