About Oxman Oxman (Ossisk) is a North Germanic language belonging to the West Norse subfamily. Oxman is spoken primarily in Eastern Ireland by the people known as Oxmen, the descendants of Norwegian settlers who invaded and established themselves as the ruling elite over the native Irish. Oxman has dwindled in the modern age, being mostly displaced by the Irish language through language replacement of the Oxmen since their fall from power. Oxman contains a great number of loanwords about agriculture and religion from Irish substratum, as well as a layer of Danish and French loanwords for subjects such as government. Oxman is closely related to Norwegian, Icelandic, Faroese, Norn, Sudrayic, and less closely related to Danish and Swedish.

[edit] [view] Limrikisk (Eastern Oxman (Limerickian))The Eastern Dialects of Oxman, also known by the name Limerickian, are the most Gaelic lnfluenced dialects, with some 30-40% of vocabulary being of Irish origin (compared to the 20-25% in Dublinese and 10% in Ulster Oxman). They are in massive decline, being among the most endangered of all Oxman varieties, quickly being replaced with Connacht and Munster Irish.
[edit] [view] Duvlinþung (Leinster Oxman (Dublinese))Leinster Oxman, also known metonymically as Dublinese (Duvlinþung) after the prestige variety of the dialect, historically known in English by the outdated, often considered pejorative, name Gallowglasish, is a dialect of Oxman spoken in Leinster, particularly around the city of Dublin. It is a middle ground between more conservative language of Ulster and the heavily gaelicized speach of the east. It was the basis for Standard Oxman, due to its litterary heritage.
[edit] [view] Uleðsk (Ulster Oxman)Ulster Oxman represents transitional dialects between Oxman and Sudrayic, being highly conservative in vocabulary, showing little loanwords from Irish, but still showing the grammatical changes present in other Dialects. Ulster was home to some of the most influential figures in Oxman history, including the Ruðhønd dynasty, who came to rule over Dublin in the 12th century, and St. Njåll, who was responsable for the conversion of the Oxmen to Irish Christianity.
