Correction: I've worked on future **Swedish**, as well as on an
alternate-timeline Inglisc.  The premise for the latter is that the Norse
beat the Inglisc at Stamford Bridge in 1066 and that there later was a
battle on the Thames between the Norse and the Normans which both claimed
to have won.  As a result Ingland was politically split in three for most
of the Middle Inglisc period: French influence was much less (tho not
wholly absent), Latin influence was somewhat less and Norse influence about
the same as in our timeline.  The idea is that Inglisc comes out a much
more "normal" Germanic language, i.e. more similar to Dutch and the
Scandinavian languages, but less archaic than German or Icelandic.  And
with a much cooler orthography...

I've also used a home-made future pidgin English in one of my stories, but
I don't think I ever mentioned that on this list...
