I'm not complaining about English being "bastardized" by people like me (which I fully encourage), but the history of English invasions and reformations makes it... a little weird, to say the least. It acts like one way once and then another way another time. And all of this invasion and invading forced it to simplify. But, really, I'm more wondering about non-indoeuropean languages that were more isolated and are often more precise than English and if these would be better for Durentu.
Then again there's the idea that linguistic relativity is bullshit. The Oxford (or in my case, Merriam Webster's) Dictionary is not a complete list of the thoughts we are allowed to have -- to make them more complicated, we just have to add more words.
