Excerpt

tion de cette race. Il n'en est pas moins vrai que la langue anglaise, foncièrement langue teutonique, est parlée maintenant dans toute la Grande-Bretagne, sauf par une fraction insignifiante de la population du Pays de Galles et des Hautes-Terres de l'Ouest. Mais il est clair que ce fait ne justifie en rien la pratique commune de parler des habitants actuels de la Grande-Bretagne comme d'un peuple «anglo-saxon». Cela est en réalité aussi absurde que l'habitude de parler des Français comme d'un peuple «latin», parce qu'ils parlent un langage qui est, en gros, dérivé du latin. Et cette absurdité devient plus palpable encore lorsque ceux qui n'hésitent pas à nommer «Anglo-Saxon» un homme du Devonshire ou de la Cornouailles, trouveraient ridicule d'appeler du même titre un homme de Typperary, encore que lui et ses ancêtres aient parlé anglais aussi longtemps que l'homme de la Cornouailles
