Has anyone tried to develop an alternate Modern English that
descends from OE of c. 1000 CE without the influence of
French and its subsequent repercussions? I'm particularly
interested in modern reflexes of OE words that Here were
lost (e.g. _wye_ 'warrior' < _wigan_). I don't have the
necessary philological knowledge to essay such an exercise
myself. (I've asked this question before, some years back,
to no great avail, but I ask it again because the pool of
competences on this list is ever crescent.)
