About Kaimen Kēling Kaimen Kēling is an a posteriori 'what if' language from a hypothetical alternate universe in which the Proto-Germanic homeland was colonized by Uralic speakers rather than Indo-European speakers.

My intent is to develop descendants corresponding to each major attested ancient Germanic language.

Children so far are  Giskain Kēl and  Old Vóddan.
