Ahh true, to the purists, English is not a language… it's a composite
of German, French, Italian, Spanish… and lots of others.

Some might say English is a "language" that beats up other languages
and steals their vocabulary.

It doesn't mean the source language is immediately understandable by
those that speak its derivative though even if individual words can be
identified. :-)
