So, I found this interesting thing the other day: The Anglish Moot.
The whole idea is to take English and try to remove the Latin, Greek, and French words. The thinking is that since those words have no root in English, they make the language harder to learn by introducing irregularities and things that don't follow the rules.
A popular example is inebriated, which has no relation to other English terms. The replacement drunk is obviously related to the English drink.
For a neat sample, consider the Declaration of Independence, otherwise known as the B.F.A. Selfhood Ledger
