The English and the French languages have vocabulary in common. Some of that vocabulary is in the form of strictly French loan words. Some is in the form of Latin loan words. This linguistic interaction was particularly strong during the two centuries after the Norman Conquest. For the Conquest, in 1066, was the last successful invasion of England. It was carried out by French and French-related language speakers from northern France. Otherwise, the languages are different in their grammars, organizations, pronunciations, and spellings. For English descends from the Germanic language family through its origins in the tribes of Angles and Saxons in early Britain. French descends from the Romance language family through its origins in the ancient interaction between the classical Latin of the ancient, conquering Romans and the native languages of the native inhabitants of Gaul.
