About Tungish It's a weird skandilang what I work on sometimes.

In an alternate world, Tungish is spoken by Scandinavian settlers to the Canadian prairies and their descendants. It originates from a distinct language or dialect group which was spoken in parts of central Scandinavia, but has since almost completely died out in its original land. The modern form of the language has significant vocabulary influences from English and French, and also some from Ukrainian and Plains Cree.
Sample of Tungish[view] Ai tuo ikkje, hen war a kjæi i badruomet mitt.

I didn't wash because there was a cow in my bathroom.
