With its vocabulary of approximately one million words, English is by far the world's richest language – but only because is so gleefully accepts words from other languages.

For example, there is no counterpart in English for 'silhouette,' 'caravan,' 'schooner,' 'chipmunk' or 'hammock' – to mention just a few – so we use the foreign word itself.

Indeed, a mere 5% of words in English are derived from Anglo-Saxon.
