About Sodish Sodish is a Anglic language spoken by about 15,000 people around the Iveragh Peninsula in County Kerry, Ireland. In 664, Old English speaking Northumbrian Ionan Christians, upset by the Synod of Whitby, moved to the area around modern-day Limerick granted to them by the Munster King Cú-cen-máthair. After the Vikings permanently settled in the area in the 9th century, the Sodes were slowly pushed to the south of Munster and what was later the Kingdom of Desmond. After the end of the Nine Years' War, the area came under brief English control. This is when the Sodes converted to Protestantism due to their anti-Roman-Catholic roots. During the Irish Rebellion of 1641 and subsequent Irish Confederate Wars, they fought against the Irish with the English. After the Cromwellian conquest of Ireland, as a reward, the Sodes were granted the baronies of Iveragh and Dunkerron. The Sodish language became a unique identity that was retained as the Protestant Sodes were further ostracized by the surrounding Irish catholics. During the early 19th century, the language declined, until the Gaelic revival in the late 19th century, when there was also a Sodish revival movement, which was accompanied by a purist movement which rid the language of many English and Latin loanwords it had acquired in the past two centuries.

Over time Sodish has diverged significantly from its parent language and has been influenced both grammatically and lexically by Old Irish, as well as Old Norse.

Features (so far):
- Masculine and feminine nouns, each with strong and weak variants (the OE neuter has merged with the masculine); four cases, NOMNominative (case)

- Consonant mutation (we all love lenition and eclipsis)
- Possession syntax borrowed from Old Irish
