Frisian is a language and nationality native to the province of Friesland in the Netherlands, but which was in ancient times far more extensive. Pockets of the language still exist in Germany. Frisian is the closest relative of English, and exists in the coastal regions of the North Sea where the Anglo-Saxons originated. Features which Frisian shares with English, but with no other Germanic language, include a vocalisation of certain consonants at the end of words.
