About Aurentine Not so long ago in a Mediterranean archipelago not so far away…

Aurentine is an Ingvaeonic language spoken in the Aurentine Commonwealth. A descendent of Old Saxon with heavy Norse and Romance influences, the language is the primary official tongue of the archipelagic state. Despite its marginalised status during Scottish, and later British, rule and the status of English as the primary language of business and government, Aurentine is the most common language in the rural expanses of the island nation and maintains uncommonly strong health for a European minority language, primarily accredited to its place in the national consciousness and its centrality to Aurentine national identity.

▼ Disclaimer
The Aurentine language was originally a group project of the NationStates General Senate (“NSG Senate” for short); the language presented here is an adaptation of said language primarily intended to be more internally consistent.

Much of the vocabulary, inflectional morphology and basic grammar is inspired by that of the original Aurentine language. The phonological system has received a radical de-derpification, as have the basic principles of orthography (most notably the omission of “ë”), while many of the more complicated grammar rules—including word order—and terms missed by political simulator forum-goers are my own creation.
Sample of Aurentine[view] Elk persöön daat moste diizen “Ik sent de koning” néttä sent ün vrikt koning.

Any man who must say "I am the king" is no true king.
