About Lentish Lentish (Len: Lętvīşu) is the language spoken in the separatist nation of Lętingrad in an alternate reality. It is a language with a long history, having been spoken in Lętingrad and neighbouring parts of the Soviet Union for at least 1,100 years. Currently, it is mainly spoken only in Lętingrad and by a few ex-pats in Western Europe. A small colony was established in Swedenmark in the late 1940's, but by 1975, they had left to rejoin the rest of the Lentish in the Great Uprising. Lentish writer and political activist Kienas Lutēgas said of the language:
It must be preserved. The mother tongue of a nation, of a people, is their guiding principle. To quake and cower at the tyranny of the Union and begin to speak Unified Russian is to deny our heritage and our right to exist as our own people.

Although Lentish has noun cases, they do not apply to pronouns or proper nouns. You (sg) would be şu regardless of whether it is nominative, accusative or other such case. Cases only apply to regular nouns.

Stress informationStress in Lentish depends on the word. Long vowels usually indicate stress, i.e. any syllable containing a long vowel is stressed. (for example: valā - /va.'la:/). Multi-syllabic words without a long vowel are always stressed on the penultimate syllable (for example: kalsentante - /kal.sɛn.'tan.tɛ/)
