Roots English is the thought that English speakers should only speak a wordset that comes from our kingly Old English/Germanic roots.

I want to have a wordfight on this land with someone about something where we otherthink and write only in Roots English. Who wants it?

I obstinately refuse to comply with such a ludicrous suggestion. I will converse in any manner I desire.
The thing is, I hate relativism. I hate relativism more than I hate everything else, excepting, maybe, fibreglass powerboats... What it overlooks, to put it briefly and crudely, is the fixed structure of human nature. - Jerry Fodor
