Love this!


Yes. This is very, very cool.

One tiny thing that might not be a tiny thing: the similarity between English and Germanic languages was forged after the Romans left Britain.

The Britons spoke Brythonic languages, of course, closer to Welsh, Breton and Cornish than the languages of the Saxons. The linguistically decisive Latin influence came surprisingly late.

Which has nothing to do with your piece, really, but I'm trying to find reasons not to do any work.

perhaps some of Beckett's french to english translations might also qualify? Difficult to pull off, latinate French to anglo-englo, and with such concision and "mouth-feel"
