Actually, no. Both the Greeks and Trojans spoke Ancient Greek, which means that English is just a substitute for the language. What I'm asking is why the Empire and the Republic speak the same language, when they both formed in almost complete isolation from each other, not why Galactic Basic Standard sounds like English.
