I wonder why it is that nobody cares about pre-Norman borrowings from Latin. Some very English-sounding words like sack and castle and cheese were borrowed from Latin during the Old English period or even earlier, and they don't seem to bother anyone. It seems like it's only the borrowings that people are aware of that bother them.

Still, if nothing else, at least Anglish is an interesting experiment.
