Alright: Greek, Celtic, Italic, Germanic & Indo-Iranian are all sisters (or brothers I suppose), their mother being in the Indo-European family of languages (or father?). Indo-Iranian is more directly related however, as English must climb three stages to get to its host "Germanic" which in turn is "Indo-European." To be exact! Anyway, I got this from the back of my dictionary! Webster's. How handy that was.
