Just remember, folks, that English started out as a
German dialect, and was subsequently polluted with
French by the nobility.  That's why all the words
used by commoners are still German, and the words
used by royalty are French.


House = Haus which is German
Palace = Palais which is French

Swine = Schwein which is German
Beef = Boeuf which is French

Boat = Boot which is German
Yacht = Yacht which is French.
