Anglish is an a posteriori conlang which was created by Bryan Parry beginning in 2004. The language is English with latinate roots redacted, and derived germanic words of these same roots added in.

The creator stated that he created the language for:
"1, aesthetics,
2, to revitalise English's Germanic word stock which I view as unneccessarily weakened due to foreign inlfuences,
3, to create a constructed language along the lines of "Palare" or "Thieves' Cant" for use by the clique of Anglo-saxonists,
4, idle interest,
5, most important of all, a deep-feeling that English can be even more meaningful if nonsense and jargon can be removed from civilised discourse. "
