English (language)

English is a language that belongs to the Indo-European language family. Its parent language is Old English, an attested language. In English, words like Mind and Brain are related to mental activity or other psychological processes. To transcribe the English language from speech to writing, scripts (writing systems) like Latin are used.

For example, the sentence below utilizes both the English language and Latin (Script) script:

I will only praise the lord of wisdom. (Script)
I will only praise the lord of wisdom.
