    English was spoken in pre-Roman times and does not descend from Anglo-Saxon

    The main content is based upon this website: How old is English? However, I'd like to clarify some further points, before responding to any counter-arguments. Anglo-Saxon (dubbed "Old English"): :suspicious: Fæder ūre, þū þe eart on heofonum; Sīe þīn nama gehālgod, tō becume þīn rīce...
