Colour coding languages

A fun item today comes from Ideas Illustrated, who have colour coded words according to their origin.

This allows readers to quickly see the word origins of a block of text – from Old English to Classical Latin. It turns out that the texts ‘translated’ mostly contained words with their origins in Old English (represented by a pink colour). Even a modern text about baseball came out mostly pink.

I wonder what the result would be if this blog was colour coded?
