    Actually, English is a Germanic language. That's why "chicken" does not start with the letter "p" like it does in Romance languages.

    There is no official language in the United States.

    To be fair, many English words come from other languages...

    I never fully understood English until I went to the Defense Language Institute to study Germany. Suddenly, it made a whole lot of sense to me.

    Haus - house
    Brot = bread
    vunder = wonder

    and so on.
