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?

How do you know what words come from where?

I obstinately refuse to comply with such a ludicrous suggestion. I will converse in any manner I desire.
