Seeing as no one else seems to have looked at the Orwell essay that Will mentioned I will provide a quote from it

Bad writers, and especially scientific, political, and sociological writers, are nearly always haunted by the notion that Latin or Greek words are grander than Saxon ones

Razed falls into this category.
