or 'am irrelevantesten' is probably the fact that it is actually Latin in origin, which means that if you don't know the word your English or German would still be all right.

I assume you wanted to say that it is not necessary or important or relevant to know the word "irrelevant" because it is originally Latin. But you did say that the fact that it is Latin is irrelevant.

Anyways, every language uses words from other languages. At some point these words belong to the language as if they were native.

Otherwise, it would be irrelevant to know words like photography or digital because they are originally Greek. You could of course use picture and numerical. But wait, numerical is Latin again. OK, sort it out yourself....

But sorry, this is way beyond the topic of this thread.
