About Bridgish Nudush ameakan la feam gepognad hukt ba ameaka. Ax shus toa nudush eglish pa doych, pa doshnat ameakant kin huk nat ba eglen pa doychlant.

American Bridgish is the language of most causeway trolls in America. It stems from (lit. splashes off/out of) British and German Bridgish, and American speakers most often understand trolls from Britain and Germany.

Language things:
  • Lots of vowels in hiatus ([a'i] contrasting with ['aj]).
  • No case marking.
  • No distinction between locative (at) and allative (to) senses of location-related adpositions.
  • Very ergativity.
  • One or two lexically-headed auxiliary verbs.
  • Slightly head-first word order.
Sample of Bridgish[view] Ay ugawda zhomi-ki dheyshko-i ushe.
