Germanic‎ > ‎South‎ > ‎


Northeadish (Druðþþȳðesc) is a constructed language that i’ve spent an inordinate portion of my life working on, which is really my vision of what a “south” germanic language might sound like.  Ostensibly, it is an amalgamation of all the things i particularly like about germanic languages rolled up into a little ball with a fancy alphabet.  A few of them, in fact!

The Back Story: How Northeadish Came to Be

Lexicon (in progress)

The lexicon that i started years ago while working on Northeadish contains several appendices with useful information about various subjects, constructions, and aspects of the language.  It may take me some time to get some of this material online, as it contains many specialized characters, tables, and graphics.  I have broken up some of these appendices into more digestible pieces.
