I'm gonna be nice, cause I think whoever wrote this got some things mixed up. There is no large family called the Gothic tongue, in fact, the languages of West and East Gothic are East Germanic in what family they belong to. German is related to Gothic, but it's not a direct decedent of it. Also, Romanic isn't a word, let along a language family. It's called Romance, sometimes Roman, and even to show the super-family, Italic. The brothers Grimm would agree with me here.--Blackkdark 13:49, 9 August 2008 (UTC)

Not so much a confusion per se, it's just that we've standardized on different taxonomy and terms than were used 130 years ago. —Muke Tever |
