Nice.

I'd prefer the opposite: romance English, without any germanic words.

Unfortunately, all the small English words are germanic. So I can't really get it work :(

Anglish is so awesome.

Check out the leaf (page) on Romish Broad-churchdom: http://anglish.wikia.com/wiki/Romish_Broad-Churchdom

"The Broad-Church has shaped Western wisdom, kithship, lore and listcraft. The Broad-Church shared gathertang with the Eastern Mainstream Church (Orthodox) until the East-West Split in 1054, infighting dealing mostly with the stewardship of the Holy Father, as well as with the Easterly Mainstream (Oriental Orthodox) churches before the Chalcedonish Split in 451 over unlikenesses in Christlore."

I'm sure it would sound neat, but its also dumb.  English's unique history and ability to absorb other languages is part of the reason it has produced some of the best literature.  The breadth of the language is barely even tapped by today's average speaker
