About Vinlandic What This Conlang is:

 Vinlandic is a modern descendant of Old Icelandic, and is located in what is now NE Canada. The Norse settlers in 'then' Vinland (Markland, and Helluland too), created and established permanent ties with the Natives, and thus never had a reason to leave. This lead to the language separating at a fast rate from Old Icelandic. It's significantly more simple, though still roughly as complicated as Modern English. And surprisingly, Vinlandic doesn't have many loanwords from the Native languages of North America.
