Place & SpeakersAlveci is spoken by a population of around 10,000,000 in Switzerland (and abroad).
Species Human/humanoid
About Alveci Alveci is a future version of Swiss German that is heavily influenced by its neighbors French and Italian (and to a lesser extent Romansch, English, and other languages).

UPDATE: Alveci now has a newTumbl blog! Please check it out: „Vilcommier auf Sveizisce!“ (I'd normally make a Tumblr for this, but I want to support newTumbl for being a good alternative.)
Sample of Alveci[view] Men, Vo nur ene Spracke plid, is en Mensce; aber Men, Vo zeué Spracki plid, is zeué Mensci.

One who speaks only one language is one person, but one who speaks two languages is two people.
