About Anglian I can be... a bit of a linguistic purist...but I also don't like how Old English has been reconstructed sometimes, so... yeah, this is a project to compromise on that, named for the region of England I live in. It's a little bit like what I imagine Old English could have been, had it been untouched by Celtic and Latin/Romance influences, but also with some personal touches

Here is a WIP document that provides a basic guide to Anglian as it is right now
Sample of Anglian[view] Þah under eorðe, ond seatleas nú æm iȝ / Ȝet hƿíles lifde iȝ ƿæs eal eorðe under mé.

Though under earth, and throneless now I be / Yet while I lived all earth was under me.
