About Einglish The Einglisç Sprâk Project is a convergent alternate history project that seeks to create a version of English that may have evolved if the Norman Invasion had failed, yet the world turned out more or less the same as our present day. Though, there's a bit more to it than that. In the creation of this project, I have sought to take into account the influence of significant historical events, socio-political factors/movements (i.e nationalism, xenophobia, progressivism, etc), and technological developments among other such things. With that said, the primary focus of this project is on the language itself and much of the alternate history involved is contained to the British Isles. In the interest of having our timeline and the Einglish timeline nearly (but not entirely) converge, I have preserved several major world events (especially more recent ones), such as the rise of colonial powers and the British Empire, the Hanseatic League, the Napoleonic Wars, and the World Wars. Alternate history events include the preservation of the Ƿitenagemot (now called the Wittengemoet) and elective monarchy in England, establishment of an Einglish language academy (Ðe Aðelig Einglisç Leidsmoet), different monarchs, and more.

The three main pillars of this project are:
  1. Non-contrarianism
  2. Cross-linguistic analysis with other Germanic languages
  3. Internal consistency
Sample of Einglish[view] All menn bieð born frij ond gelijk in weurðihôd ond rijts. Ðej haveð afongen gesçâd ond gewitt ond sçollen beholde anoðer in âm gost of broðerred.

All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights. They are endowed with reason and conscience and should act towards one another in a spirit of brotherhood.

[edit] [view] Aðeleid (Atheleid)"Noble Speech". Aðeleid is the prestige dialect of written Einglisc amongst the global Einglisc-speaking community. Its name comes from the Aðelig Einglisc Leidsmoet (Royal Einglisc Language Council), the foremost authority of the Einglisc language. Aðeleid is technically not a single dialect, but a standard of writing. It's used in Great Britain and the Commonwealth.
