Homework Help: English 3

Posted by Coconut Butt on Friday, July 6, 2007 at 6:14pm.

WHat is the percent that English derives from Latin?

I don't know if there's an actual number you can give for this question. If you're talking about vocabulary, it's probably more than 50%; if you're talking about grammar and structure, it's probably less than 50%. You'll need to be specific.

Well, I was told that Latin made up 85% of the English language. Is this true?
