Deriving new languages from English and French

Anyone have ideas of how I could derive a new language from English? How
could I get a very small vocalic inventory from about 14 vowels?

And French, how could I derive a language sounding like Finnish, so as to
make the words look and sound unrecognizable (but really be Romance)? I was
thinking of metathesis and fricativization: table -> talva.
