Is there a type of conlang which tries to combine and simplify French and English? (Few word examples)

  1. I- Mi
  2. You- Vu
  3. We- Nu
  4. This- Di
  5. That- Do
  6. Who- Ve
  7. What- Ku
  8. No- No

Note:- This language is not just French and English combined. It also makes up similar sounding or entirely different words.

  • I know I've heard of a language like this, but I can't remember what it was called. Obviously, that doesn't mean you can't make your own. May 1, 2020 at 12:12
  • Yeah, I'm going for an 'ancient but evolving', 'simplistic but not too simplistic' language spoken by humans in an earth-like environment but with different geography and history. May 2, 2020 at 11:08

Probably something similar already exists. Languages of this type are called somewhat despectively Euroclones in the conlang community and the field of such languages is pretty well trotted out, though most designers prefer English-Spanish blends with simpler phonology over English-French blends. Euroclones are often marketed as International Auxiliary Languages by their respective proponents.

For the personal pronouns, Ido looks like a good match.
