A primitive language first utilized by the Anglo-Saxons since the Dark Ages, the English language has since been developed into one of the most dominant and useful languages to know as of today. Stemming from a wide range of influences, Old English, the foundation of the “New English” that we now use worldwide is a language completely difference from its descendent.

The second major source of influence is the Vikings in Scandinavia, which spoke primarily Norse. The usage of different dialects in each Scandinavian region is said to have helped “Old English accelerate in development” (Barber 137) As well, the Celtic language introduced analytic word order to the Germanic Old English.
