The language sounded more like German.
About half of our modern words come from Old English roots, including: be, strong, and water. 450 - 1100 AD English changed again with the invasion of the Normans from France in 1066.
The new ruling class spoke an old version of French. For a time, the upper class spoke the language of the court (French), and the lower class spoke English.
The mixture of the two became Middle English. By mid 1400, everyone was back to the new and improved English. It is estimated that there are between 1 million and 2 million words in the English language.
American English pronunciations sound more like Early Modern English than British English does.
Shakespeare invented around 3000 words.
Someone who doesn’t have a university education probably knows about 35,000 words.
Someone well educated might know more than 75,000 words.
Words like “I”, “three”, and “who” might last up to 20,000 years, while words like “stab” or “throw” have a lifetime of 800-1000 years. TRIVIA 2. Write a love letter to someone in regular English.
