The American language was not decided by just a whole bunch of letters and sounds together. The truth is, English comes from many languages, some including English, French, Sp…anish, German, etc. For a French example, the name Titanic. For a Spanish example, taco and so much more. So, a Spanish language can influence an American language so much.
One way I know the English language influences the Spanish language, is there are certain words called "cognates". A cognate is a word that looks the same in Spanish than it d…oes in English. For example, the words "perfecto" means "perfect". I'm sure you could have guessed that by looking at the two words, right? That because they are cognates. Another example would be "fantastico" whose meaning is the same as the English word similarly spelled. There are other ways that English influences Spanish, but that's the most obvious way.
By this question, I'm understanding what the ORIGIN of the language is. Mostly Latin, Greek and Arabic (remember, the Arabs were in Spain for 770+ years). That's why the "g" a…nd "j" sounds are gutteral ( g emido, J orge ). That's why most words with a "Z" in it is from Arabic origins: z apato for example. If you are really wanting to know what languages have influence on the Spanish language, it is those who do the most business with them internationally. English due to the USA and Great Britain (Australia and other former colonies to a much lesser extent), French, German, Italian, (any neighbor really) all have influence on their syntax.
What America? South America? Central America? North America? That is the answer
Spanish is categorized as a Romance language. For it traces its origins back to the long-ago interactions between the Latin language of the ancient Romans and the ancient la…nguages of the Iberian Peninsula.. There are major and minor languages within the Romance category. The two phrases refer to the total numbers of speakers. Examples of major languages are French, Italian, Portuguese, Romanian, and Spanish . Exampes of minor languages are the Catalan language of Barcelona; and the Galician of northwestern Spain.. Even with a limited beginning vocabulary, it's easy to guess what Spanish words may be. It's even easier for the individual who knows Latin. For that knowledge helps the individual to predict quite correctly what the word will be in Spanish based upon the known changes of words, over time, from Latin into each one of the Romance languages.. Many language learners take up the study of Spanish, because they believe it to be an easy language. Indeed, the grammatical rules are simple, and the spelling predictable. But two challenges are the diversity within spoken Spanish, and the speed with which the language is spoken.. Fortunately, there are many aids to becoming fluent in Spanish. For Spanish culture draws upon a big historical body of music, literature, and film. And there are many places to choose from when it's time to put learning skills into practice, in real life. For there are Spanish speaking communities throughout the world. And so if travel to another country isn't possible, then contact with speakers within one's own country is a viable alternative.
The effect of Spanish emerging as a dominant language on America's culture is minimal. However, there are two professional sectors that have helped to create this special infl…uence: music and film. Without the language and natives, we wouldn't have our Hispanic cuisine, entertainment, and politics. At a political level, where Hispanics occupy positions of great relevance in federal politics, such as Alberto Gonzalez, who was the Attorney General of the United States under the administration of Gorge Bush.
The Ge'ez language greatly influenced african languages
The Moors influenced Spanish in something like the way that the Normans influenced English. In both cases, the ruling class of the country spoke a different language than the …ordinary people, imposing that language on them and gradually altering the vocabulary. The underlying grammatical structures of English and Spanish remained unaltered, while both saw an increase and change in the vocabularies.
The Romans spoke Latin and they took the language with them as they expanded. At least five major European languages are based on Latin. These languages are known as the Roman…ce languages--Italian, Spanish, Portuguese, French and Romanian. English too, has a strong Latin influence, although is is not actually a "grandchild" of Latin.
When Spain came to Mexico to govern it, some Spanish people had relationships with Mexican people. By that, Mexico developed the Spanish language.
The Spanish language evolved from greek, latin, and Arabic, also from other European languages, like German.
English has given words related to sports such as futbol (football), baloncesto (basketball), hockey... In last years (since 1960 and XXI century), Spanish has taken modern wo…rld words related to business, shopping, technology, television, music, fashion... (trendy, handicap, guay, cool, crash, outlet, tablet, internet...)
There are innumerable existing and dead languages, many named simply for the countries where they are the official or dominant language: English, Scottish, Irish (Gaelic), Wel…sh, French, Dutch, Italian, Portuguese, German, Polish, Russian, Hawaiian, Chinese (Mandarin), Japanese, Norwegian, Danish, Swedish, Finnish, Hungarian, Greek, and Arabic. Others are tribal, regional or ethnic languages: Farsi, Tagalog, Afrikaans, Hindi, and Aramaic. Also extant or ancient written languages such as Braille (blind) or Sanskrit (India and South Asia).
