That's one of the most impressive things I`ve seen on this site yet. I always try to get that point across, and this is perfect.

English has many Latin roots because of influence from other languages, but I alpensepp is basically right. English and German both derived from the same proto-germanic language, and was heavily influenced by French due to French and English speakers sharing much of history together (French speakers were higher-class, so while French influenced English, it did not go the other way around as well).
English has many connections to Latin, but it is probably closer to German. This is usually why languages like French, Spanish, and Italian are referred to as "Latin-based" languages, and English is not.
