About Red Canaanite Red Canaanite is a dialect of Canaanite, going down the Hebrew path, descended from a population bottleneck that shipwrecked itself onto the back of a wandering island. It has undergone fortition and retains some of the consonants lost in Hebrew. It really is a dialect but it's going to diverge from Hebrew eventually.
Sample of Red Canaanite[view] Abinu Shebashamayim, yitkadash shimka, tabo' malkutaka yayhasih

Our Father in heaven, / May your name be honored. / May your kingdom come. / May your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. / Give us today our daily bread; / And forgive us our debts, as we ourselves have forgiven our debtors. / And do not lead us into temptation, but deliver us from evil. / For yours is the kingdom, the power, and the glory / Forever, amen.
