    English is a proto-Germanic language. Among other languges, it has been influenced by a number of Germanic peoples including the Angles, Saxons, Danes, Franks, Frisians and Jutes. Historically, English originated from several dialects, now collectively termed Old English, which were brought to the eastern coast of the Great Britain by Germanic setllers, predominantly the Anglo-Saxons, around the 5th century. English was further influenced by the Old Norse language of Viking invaders. The most dominant dialect became the West-Saxon dialect.
