Craftspeak/Craftspeech (<OE cræftspræc "technical language")

In edhuing English wordshat to fit the cleanyearn forelie, one of our foremost upgaves is to forenglish underworpwords emb to forberrow that all wordlingbereaches are lastendly handled. Forestelled below are sundry wordlists set forth to lay the groundwork for a more embfating wellowingforegang.

In reforming English vocabulary to fit the purist model, one of our foremost tasks is to anglicize topical words in order to ensure that all areas of discourse are ultimately addressed. Presented below are various wordlists set forth to lay the groundwork for a more comprehensive enrichment process.

One of the greatest works of Anglish is to think up craftly words which do not come from Greek or Latin roots. Most folk believe English sheerly could not make words for such things without borrowing. Yet our brothertongues in Quidland (Dutch, Netherlandish, Swedish asf.) seem to fare much better than us in this fack.

William Barnes, the 19th Yearhundred Dorset leethwriter, eaweward, and speechlerer, believed strongly in a "clean" English speech. He wrote sundry books and offhandlings on the lores and crafts in his kind of "cleansed" English.

Note well: The honewordy hue of the nameword lore (OE lár) is lorely (OE lárlic), while that of craft (OE cræft) is crafty (OE cræftig).
