READ THE PASSAGE AND CHOOSE THE BEST ANSWERS TO THE QUESTIONS. (10 PTS) The English language is part of the Indo-European family of languages. Most modern European languages (but not, for example, Hungarian) and some Asian languages, like Hindi and Sanskrit, are members of this family as well. Two European branches of Indo-European are particularly important to consider when looking at the history of how English developed: Germanic languages and the Romance languages, such as French, Italian, and Spanish, which have their roots in Latin. English is in the Germanic branch of Indo-European languages. This branch of languages came into existence about three thousand years ago in an area around the Elbe River in what is now Germany. Around the second century BC, what had begun as one Germanic language split off into three disparate groups. One of these groups eventually evolved to become the German language spoken today. Another group was known as West Germanic. In the fifth and sixth centuries AD, West Germanic invaders called the Angles and the Saxons came to the British Isles. They spoke two dialects of West Germanic that were similar to one another, and these dialects merged into what we today call Old English, which was very similar to West Germanic. These invaders pushed the original Celtic speaking inhabitants out of what is now England. There are still a few Celtic words in English, though. The English language of that period was also influenced by the Vikings. Old English lasted until 1100, about the time of the Norman Conquest. When the Normans, residents of what is now a region of France, invaded and conquered England, the English language was forever changed. The Normans spoke a dialect of Old French known as Anglo-Norman, which had both French and Germanic influences. This became the chosen language of the upper class of England, the Normans, for more than one hundred years, while the majority of people continued to speak Old English. However, the loss of Normandy to France in 1204 changed this situation. The Norman nobles started to sever their connections with France and speak a modified version of Anglo-Norman. This new language, which was a combination of Anglo-Norman and Old English, is now known as Middle English. While modem speakers of English would not be able to read or understand Old English, they could, with some difficulty, read Middle English. By 1362, English had become the official language of England. The alterations that marked these early periods of English were not the end of its transformation, however. During the Renaissance, English changed again. One reason for this was that many Latin and Greek words were introduced into English as scholars rediscovered important ancient works written in those languages. In addition, many other completely original words were introduced into English, and the famous playwright William Shakespeare is credited with having either created or recorded over two thousand of these words. There were two other major influences in the transformation of Middle English into Modern English. One is called the “Great Vowel Shift.” This term refers to a change in pronunciation that began around 1400. Though a Modern English reader could make sense of something written in Middle English, it would sound completely foreign. One example of the change in pronunciation is that the letter “e” at the end of many English words became silent. Middle English speakers would have pronounced it. The other influence in the development of Modern English was the invention of the printing press and the subsequent proliferation of books. Prior to the printing press, spelling, grammar, and even usage were very flexible. However, with the advent of printed texts, these elements of the language became standardised, so there has been far less variability in Modern English than there was in earlier forms. Changes since the time of Shakespeare have been mainly in the category of vocabulary. Technological advances have made necessary the creation of words to describe new objects, processes, and ideas. Industry, computers, and space travel all required new descriptive terms. Words can also fall out of usage from one generation to the next. Another reason for the evolving vocabularies has been the increasing communication between and migration of people all over the world. Words from foreign places have been absorbed into the language. For example, the common word “shampoo” comes from the Hindi language. Overall, it can be seen that English has undergone great transformations since its origin, over three thousand years ago, on the shores of the Elbe River. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Đề Thi Thử Tuyển Sinh Lớp 10 Chuyên THPT 3 Năm học: 2014-2015 _ Môn: Tiếng Anh (Chuyên) _ 2014
