Language type A posteriori
Species Human/humanoid
About Nuvimak Nuvimak is an a posteriori language set in the Nunavik region in northern Quebec, Canada. It is a creole language descended from French and Inuktitut (Nunavimmiutitut - the Nunavik dialect). (Unfortunately it is easier to find source material, especially vocabulary, from the South Baffin dialect, so some words may be imperfectly derived.

In general the vocabulary is French-based and the grammar Inuktitut, but there are exceptions to both rules. The phonology is a blend of the two.
