Abstract [en]

The English language is not something that should be studied in isolation. English is like any other language, related in one way or another to many of the laguages of the world, one of them being Latin. The English language has borrowed several items from Latin, this extinct language that once was known as the language of knowledge. Latin did not just come into the English language in the shape of loan-words, it also caused existing words to be reshaped, due to the fact that Latin was looked upon as prestigious. Latin is only one of the languages that have influenced the language we have come to call English.
