About Bruzic Bruzic (Brusjike) is a Germanic-based language focused in Bruza, a small European country, as well as a dialect (considered by some to be a different language) in the country of Southern Bruza. Old Bruzic was spoken by the people until 1649, using runes and later, a version of the Latin alphabet. Diacritics were, and still are, used to represent /j/ and /w/ before vowels. Modern Bruzic was formed when King Ērald (Yerald) created a "class barrier," in which words used to describe the higher class would be composed of more "nuanced" letters. Ērald's definition of "nuance" was based on nasals and laterals; after which, he changed his name to Ēland (Yeland). He managed from there to introduce two new laterals: /ɬ/ and /tɬ/, attempted to introduce a third, allowed "ng" to be used at the beginning of words, and introduced Ñ as a palatal nasal. He also had views on lower class sounds. In particular, he felt uvulars and trills (both ubiquitous in Old Bruzic) were "brutish" and should only be used to describe things relating to "undesirables." The only instance he didn't change was the "br" in "Brusjike," seeing it as a historical artifact of a once misguided language.

Things changed. Modern Bruzic remains relatively unchanged since this great reform, but its home country tends to get itself into a lot of wars. It fought with Russia over a bit of domestic territory in 1814, and the verdict was swift. Russia took approximately half of Bruza's land area in the south. The language was transliterated to Cyrillic, which was met with some resistance, but the biggest reform of Southern Bruzic had yet to come. Once the First World War ends and a great Revolution sweeps the motherland, Stalin set his sights on destroying Bruzic culture. Bruza represented the epitome of the capitalist pig, a world where class was so cemented, it was a part of everyday language! Stalin quickly created a reform that would get rid of that, and the effects show decades later, when South Bruza was reborn.
