English Spelling

The English language is a West Germanic language that developed in the South of Great Britain during the Anglo-Saxon era. As a result of the expansion of the British Empire and the victory of the United States during World War II the English language was spread out all over the globe. It is used as an official or second language in many parts of the world especially in the also called Commonwealth and is also the working language of many international organisations such as the United Nations and the European Union. One can even say that the English language is even the international required language of communication, aviation, entertainment, science and technology. In terms of grammar and vocabulary the English language was mainly influenced by the Germanic and the French language. Auxiliary verbs are an important part of the English language: the mark syntactical constructions such as negative sentences, questions and passives voices. Grammatically the English language is quite simple: case marking has almost disappeared and was replaced by the use of pronouns.
