About Gothish When the Germanic people arrived in the Iberian Peninsula between AD 409 and AD 711, they brought with them their language, mainly Suebi, Visigoths and Buri. The language was spread by settlers, and merchants, who built Germanic cities mostly near the settlements of previous Celtic and Roman civilizations established long before the Germanic arrivals. For that reason, the language has kept a relevant substratum of Roman and Celtic culture, part of the Hispano-Celtic group of ancient languages.
The occupiers, who originally spoke Germanic languages, quickly developed dialects and over the next 300 years totally integrated into the local populations. Some Vulgar Latin words from that period are part of the Gothish lexicon. With the Umayyad conquest beginning in 711, Arabic became the administrative and common language in the conquered regions, but most of the remaining Christian population continued to speak a form of Romance called Mozarabic which introduced a few hundred words from Arabic as well as Persian, Turkish, and Berber. Like English, Gothish has adopted a significant number of loanwords from Greek, mainly in technical, scientific terminology and by lithurgical texts. These borrowings occurred via Latin, and later during the Middle Ages and the Renaissance.
Gothish evolved from the medieval language, known today by linguists as Ibero-Gothic or Old Gothish, of the northwestern medieval Kingdom Gothorum of which the County of Portugal and León was part.
In the first part of the Ibero-Gothic period (from the 12th to the 14th century), the language was increasingly used for documents and other written forms being influenced by romance languages constantly, since the language of preference for lyric poetry in Christian Hispania was Galician-Portuguese, much as Occitan was the language of the poetry of the troubadours. The end of the Old Gothic period was marked by the increasing in literature.
