About Middle Sunþar  Middle Sunþar is direct descendant of  Old Sunþar, and was spoken until 900 A.D. as the language evolved into its descendants. However, though it is extremely close grammatically to  Old Sunþar, there exists a modern language that is in fact closer grammatically and lexically to  Old Sunþar, and that language is  Middle-Sea Sunþar. Linguists separate these languages by marking them as East Sunþar, or West Sunþar. There are significantly more languages within the West Sunþar branch.

[view] Gaulsk (Gaulic Sunþar)One of the two major dialects of Middle Sunþar. Was spoken in modern day southwestern France. It eventually evolved into modern Gaulsh (Gallish), which is spoken mainly around the border of France and Spain. It is recognized as a minority language. For some strange reason, which linguists pursue the answer of, dental fricatives were kept, though French doesn't have those phonemes.
[view] Spensk (Hispanic Sunþar)One of the two major dialects of Middle Sunþar. Hispanic Sunþar was spoken in modern day Portugal and Spain. It eventually gave rise to Surspansk (Latin Sunþar), which is now spoken and recognized throughout Brazil as an official language brought to the Americas during the Spanish Conquest.
This dialect is interesting, as it has lost dental fricatives, glottal consonants, labio-velar consonants, and the /œ~ø/ vowels merged with /a~æ/.
