About Fjordish Fjordish (Fjordish: Fírþiskas, Fírþiscas, ɪᴘᴀ: [ˈfɪr.θɪs.kɑs]) is a Germanic language spoken by a small minority in Southeastern Europe. Fjordish has significant influence from Greek, primarily in phonology.

Features:
- Proto-Germanic /z/ become /s/
- Voiced stops become voiced fricatives
- Diphthongs become monophthongs (mostly)
- Lack of umlaut
- SOV without an auxiliary, SAuxOV with an auxiliary, VSO in imperatives
- Noun-Adjective order.
- Possessives go after the noun unless other adjectives are present, in which case the possessive goes in front
- Retains most inflections from Proto-Germanic
- Retention of dual number in pronouns and verb forms
- Most loanwords come from Greek with a small amount from Bulgarian and Turkish
- Velars before front vowels are palatalized similar to Italian or Romanian
- Written with a form of the Gothic alphabet.
- Arabic numerals (1, 2, etc.) are rarely used outside of math and related contexts. Most of the time, but especially with years, alphanumeric form is used (ex. ·B,KG· = 2023)

The Lord's Prayer (Sa Fraújins Prúsevxi)
Átta únsar, sa in oúraniv,
hagiáz náman þein.
Qimadaú basíleiu þein.
Virþadaú gírni þeina,
sve in oúran jah an Gis.
Gib únsarana hlaib epioúsian únsis hímma dagaí·
Jah fragíb únsis skuld únsara,
sve vis skúlan únsarana fragíbam·
Jah ni laíþi uns ta peírasmiv,
ak soïz uns fram úbila.
Amín.
