Hi Don, this is a bit of an odd way of looking at history. This suggests modern day German was the origin of English when English and German just share the same roots. Might as well say that we are all borrowing from Sanskrit! Incidentally, English was well polluted well before 1066 - don't forget that the Romans, Celts and Vikings all added to the word pool long before 1066. The Normans were actually 'Norsemen' and Norman French, with its Scandivian (thus Germanic influences), was signficantly different to the language of the rest of France.
