Anglo-Saxon and Danish Words in the English Language

Although a great many words in English have Latin or Greek roots, the majority of words used in everyday English are Anglo-Saxon, hence the Anglo-ish = English.

Anglo-Saxon in origin are:
after, and, at, brother, but, can, friend, home, in, may, when, will... 

In fact, most auxiliary verbs, articles, conjunctions, prepositions, and pronouns in the English language are Anglo-Saxon.

The Danish of the Vikings was, of course, closely related to Anglo-Saxon, but there were certain differences in pronounciation as well as in vocabulary.

Among the many Danish words that entered the English language are some very common words, e.g.

bask, both, call, die, dream, egg, fellow, flat, fro, get, give, hale, ill, law, loose, nay, raise, rugged, sister, swain, take, though, weak, window...

and some of the personal pronouns: they, them, their

+ most words beginning with the letters "sk":
skin, skirt, sky... and scant, scrape and scrub
