Modern English is _____. a. analytic b. synthetic User: Old English was _____.
Weegy: English is a West Germanic language which is named for its origins as the native tongue of the people of England. User: a language that uses word order to express grammatical relationships User: verbal Weegy: In linguistics, the verbal noun is a noun formed from or otherwise corresponding to a verb. It is a non-finite verb form and its use across different languages corresponds roughly to the infinitive or gerund in English language usage. [ In English the infinitive form of the verb is formed when preceded by to, e.g. to sell; different languages may have one or more grammatical processes for forming a noun from a verb. In many languages that have an infinitive, such as English, the infinitive form of a verb can be used as a noun; in English, this use is known as the "supine" or "to-infinitive", in which the bare infinitive is preceded by the particle to: "To err is human, to forgive divine." In English, the supine functions as a mass noun. The English supine is a non-finite verb, that is, it cannot be inflected to mark person or tense. While it cannot have a grammatical subject, it may take an object: "His greatest desire was to serve his country." When languages have a second grammatical process for forming verbal nouns, it is often called the gerund. In English, the gerund is formed by the ending -ing: "Speaking is silver, silence is golden." This form is more flexible in its use; for example, it can be used as a count noun: "Most verses of the psalm have multiple readings." Like the supine, the English gerund is a non-finite verb. The terms "supine" and "gerund" are taken from Latin grammar, in which they also denote verbal nouns, which however differ in many aspects from the correspondingly named English constructions. The variety of verbal nouns across languages does not allow for a unified treatment. ] (More)

[ ] User: synthetic language Weegy: a synthetic language is a language with a high morpheme-per-word ratio, as opposed to a low morpheme-per-word ratio in what is described as an isolating language. [ This linguistic classification is largely independent of morpheme-usage classifications (such as fusional, agglutinative, etc.), although there is a common tendency for agglutinative languages to exhibit synthetic properties. ] (More)
