Right - "bogolangs" are indeed bogus. That grafting sound changes of one 
language onto another language does not work easily because of the 
different phonology is only part of the problem. Once you change the 
linguistic landscape of a country (e.g., by replacing Latin with Greek, 
or Celtic with Latin) you *substantially change its further linguistic 
history*, and one would not expect the same changes to happen to the 
language despite it being an entirely different one!
