Has there ever been an example of a language whose vocaubulary was completely replaced by loanwords? How would such a language be classified?

For example, if the vocabulary of English were replaced entirely by non-English, non-Germanic loanwords, would the resulting language still be considered English? Would it still be classed as a Germanic language?
