I have long been curious of the History and Origin of the English Language.
When exactly did it emerge? is there a specific date or time period?
English Can be Traced as far back as 5,000 BCE
What languages exactly did it originate from?
English is essentially a West Germanic language.
The Primal version of English is called ol English 550–1066 CE aka Anglo-Saxon.
Old English is like English except it has similar grammar to modern German, being closely related so it is hard to understand.
The language is a bit more liberated, from my observation old English is so open it can like poetry I can allow for a broader range of tones and pitch.
Anglo-Sax Replaced Roman British around 400 CE
I'm sure that would be an awesome language to listen to!
Here are some examples of similarities between English and Anglo-Frisian languages
