This language is spoken by about 314,000 people. It has remained relatively unchanged for almost a thousand years meaning modern speakers can read historical works like the Eddas from the 13th century with a little effort.
The language avoids borrowing words where possible, preferring linguistic purism.
Where English has electricity, derived from Greek, speakers of this tongue refer instead to ‘amber power’; an army tank is a ‘crawling dragon’, and a computer is a ‘number seeress’.
