Topic: The English language came from German?

The Angles and the Saxons were some of the tribes that invaded Great Britain, and they came from Germany. A lot of English Words come from German (House- Haus, etc…) and all the irregular verbs of the English language are German verbs (forget = vergessen, for example.)

For the last 10 hours, "The Free Dictionay" has refused to load correctly. I get the message "Somthing went wrong". I don't use any adblockers; I run the latest versions of Firefox and Safari; I cleared all caches several times; I am a long time subscriber to the "add-free" version of the site. What next?
