Re: Yorkish

Hooray! I was hoping for a thread on this. Your samples looked juicy. Yorkish ( Eurcisc /ˈʏrcɪsc/) is an Insular North Germanic language spoken in Yorkrice (ie. across our Yorkshire and going partway south) and in pockets in Angland. It is closely related to its southern sibling Markish, I assume M...

Yorkish

So I've been posting translations in this lang around the place and I figured I might finally start writing up some detail about it.

Re: Arayaz's thread so that she doesn't flood the forum
