From The Anglish Wiki


See the Anglish Wordbook for an alphabetical Anglish wordbook of all currently revived words, and some Modern English words, with their definitions in English. This wordbook instead lists by English definition, and is more or less what we'd call in English a "Thesaurus".

The goals of this wordbook are to:

  1. Show from English words, those words that were borrowed into English after the takeover of 1066, or words made in deal or full from lemmas borrowed after 1066 (un-Anglish words). (Such as: just; because.)
  2. Show the nearest word-for-word match, when possible, especially for words with many meanings; or otherwise a phrasal verb or saying if there is no equivalent Anglish word. (Meanings as told by the Oxford Dictionary/Thesaurus).)
  3. Unless it would mean breaking rule 2, to prefer a more widely understandable, English-language word, rather than a book Anglish word (archaic or revived from Middle or Old English, with meanings as told by the Middle English Compendium and Bosworth-Toller Anglo-Saxon Dictionary). (Such as: return becomes readily known go back rather than a calque or reconstruction such as eftwend)

Outlandish words can be sorted into inkhorns, or egregious needless borrowings, (type 1 - like biology and pyromania), other clearly non English words, but that aren't as egregious (type 2 - like provide and different), English sounding words that killed off inborn words (type 3 - like turn and hurt), and English sounding words that caused little death of inborn words (type 4 - like strive and glean).



See other writs of mine, although roots in this book can be put to work in compound words too.

Remember to think about if you could use a compound word (often two nouns) instead of an adjective. If you do make a compound, -y, -ly, -like, -ish, -some, -ful, and so on are most likely dropped. This applies mostly to adjectives with meanings clearly derived from nouns or perhaps verbs (like "national" or "social", but not "different" or "important").
