People communication rather than anything else is

are capable to exchange knowledge, their opinions, wishes, thanks, feelings and
their beliefs between them. People express their self in different ways like
smiling, laughing, shrieking, but the system of communication rather than
anything else is language. Language is a system for communicating,
communication is the process of sending and receiving information between
people. Language defines ones entire way of life, involved one’s thinking and
the all other forms of mental activity. Around the world there is large number
of languages. There isn’t an exact list of living languages but it considered
to be more than 6000. English language is official language in a large number
of countries and is not only an international language but essential language
for interpersonal communication across the world. After Chinese and Spanish
languages, English is the third most widespread native language in the world,
also it is most widely learned second language; there considered to be more
people who have learned it as a second language than there are native speakers.
History of English language it is divided into three periods known as Old
English, Middle English and Modern English, now as a global language, English
was first spoken in early medieval England and its vocabulary has been
influenced by Germanic languages.  

language as an early language has developed for more than 1400 years. Vocabulary
is mixed from different sources; a majority of words came from either other
languages or were coined from elements of foreign words. It considered that
loanwords in English come from different languages maybe over 50 other languages;
some of languages that influenced English more are: Celtic, French, Latin,
Greek, Norman, Dutch, Spanish, Italian, Indian languages, German, Old Norse, Hebrew
and Yiddish, Arabic etc. Latin influence can be seen in every period of the
English language history, its influence has varied in kind from one period to
the next. In the period of Old English many Latin loanwords were never widely
used or even known, some only occurred for a short time. Many were subsequently
lost. Borrowing words in that period are some like candela – candle, cista –
chest, crispus – curl, arka – ark, magister – master, pirum –
pear, psalmus – psalm. In Middle English
many borrowings happened from Latin, French and Greek the most of them. French
words are very close to Latin ones. On the other hand it is known that there
are many words from French, words like sign and giant are not from Old English
loanwords segn and gigant but are borrowings from Old
French signe and geant.   Even before the conquest, a number of Greek
words had entered English language by way of Latin but some may have come into
Germanic directly from Greek.  The main
sources of our present English word stock are from Latin, French and Greek.
There were not so much words from British Celtic but as Indian there are some
English places with Celtic names. Later there were more Celtic words that
introduced into English; for example bannuc
– a bit, bratt – cloak, brocc – badger, camb – combe, valley; and
torr – peak. Scandinavian language was not so much different from English;
they were so similar that some words were hard to distinguish which they
belonged to. In modern English were some borrowings, for example ski, rug. The loanwords from French are so
much; the earliest are castle, prison,
capon and juggler. Later Norman
Conquest made French the language class in England and some of the loanwords
were court, crime, government and
others. After 16th century there were loanwords from other languages
like Spanish, Portuguese, and Italian.  Spanish
borrowings words are armada, avocado,
barbecue, bolero, cannibal, alligator, cask, chocolate, cigar, guitar,
hurricane, desperado, and domino. Till the Modern English no words came
from Portuguese, those borrowing words include albino, pagoda, palaver etc. A good many Italian words have
improved the English, words like opera,
piano, maestro, sonata, cantata, concerto, finale those words for musical
terminology. Dutch and Low German contributed with a number of words to English
comparing High German that has had little impact. Languages from east had also
influenced the English; from china are words;
ketchup, wonton; from Japan they include karaoke, karate; also words from Africa like banana, samba etc.
