History

The Auronian language was firstly found in the year 666. It was called Avaronna by the natives and was spoken in all of the Auronian tribes. The language was lightly affected throughout the history, until 1867, when Ingerland colonized Auronia and started influencing it.

Ingerland tended to completely overthrow the Auronian language, but that didn't really go as planned. However, many Auronian words were "Ingerized". At least 20% of the current language is Auronian-Ingerish Creole. Most of the Creole words are anagrams of original Ingerish words.

Auronia has tried to revive the old Auronian language, but with no effect in the last few decades.
