About Steinbader There are many dialects of Limburgish Dutch out there, each with their own quirks, grammar, pronunciation and spellings; but in the hypothetical case that a Limburgish country were to ever be formed; such as the Grand Duchy of Steinbad (Groethertogdom Sjteinerbeed) - a unified, singleton language would need to be formed, with rigid rules for grammar and vocabulary. That's what this is.

Floating on the line between conlang and real lang; this is not so much a constructed language, as it tries to, as closely as possible, emulate an existing language, but rather an imagined potential future/present. Because Limburgish is (sadly) rather poorly documented online, and because it has so many wide ranging dialects in them, there is some constructed components; but this in its essence, will try to emulate a unification.

Usage for this langauge is to, eventually, incorporate it into a conworlding project. Thus, very rarely, some vocabulary might also be derived from other sources. Slightly more commonly, some vocabulary might also be different from real world Limburgish to diversify the language; these two aforementioned cases will always be mentioned as such on the etymology section.
