About Latverian Lincevil Latvérie; Lincevil Eír.
The Language of Latveria; Our Language

Fanlang for Latverian (Marvel).

Drawing on the few pieces of dialogue that are included in a few select comic issues, as well as drawing on various Germanic, Slavic, Balkan, Hungarian, Romanian, and Latin influences.

I have also implemented a personal spelling reform to the comics-derived words to make the language as a whole look and feel more cohesive, though in some ways it does still resemble three languages smashed together, spelling-wise. But to be fair, so does English.
