I've poked around on the website I gave and found a fair amount of
(transliterated) Enochian. Whatever its source, none of it is English, so
I'm not sure what you mean here.

It does perhaps have 'loan words' from English that curiously reflect
Dee's world-view: for instance, 'LONDOH' means 'kingdoms', 'MADRID' means

I was surprised not to find it in the CSUR: I assume no-one from the
Enochian user community has made any effort in that direction. Perhaps
they're put off by the word 'constructed'.

No angel has ever spoken to me in Enochian, nevertheless, I imagine that
if one were to learn the Enochian language, any angels that did speak to
one would use it...
