Hello Frederick!

Could we see a bit more of your log and of your TeX file?

The log file should have something like these lines:

Document Class: article 2004/02/16 v1.4f Standard LaTeX document class

And the TeX file should be for a reasonable test as simple as possible, 
i.e., most lines should start with % or be empty. When this works then 
you can remove more and more ``%´´ from the other \usepackage lines too 
find when it breaks. When this first simple document already fails, 
then it's rather sure that something in you installation is defective 
... To determine what such change english to some other language you 
have made active at installation time!

When did you last run sudo texhash?
