English: The Global Language

ENGLISH IS A GERMANIC LANGUAGE OF THE INDO-EUROPEAN FAMILY. It is the language of the Anglo-Saxon world, as well as the lingua franca of the globalized age. Despite its Germanic origins, English has been heavily influenced by French and other Romantic languages.

Some of the unique characteristics of English include the dummy subject, the widespread use of phrasal verbs, articles and prepositions (due to the lack of inflection).
