. The Hifnakian Language or in Hifnakian, det Hifnakiske Sprog is a North-Gaerman Language spoken primarily in Hifnakia.

History

The beginning of the language began in around 560 AD, where there was a main language, Hifnakian Romantish (Lenguan Romantica Ebnacaea). The North-Gaerman languages began splitting up in 560, and a new, Hifnakian language arose. It was called Toñga Evnakishca.

It began developing to Old Hifnakian in 792, where it was called Sprøta Hefnakiska.

Then in 1025, Khariyan Hifnakian, or called Middle Hifnakian evolved, and it was called Dilansprogga Hifnakiyya. It was highly influenced by Personic and Arabique languages.

In 1566, Middle Hifnakian evolved to Early Modern Hifnakian. Sproet Hefnakisk. The Personic and Arabique loanwords were replaced by Nether-Kalmish words.

In 1601, a vowel shift began, some words swapped place, and Hifnakian splitted in two, Traditional Hifnakian, Sprovet Hiefnakisk and Sultanic Hifnakian, Die Hifnakiske Sproige. More NK words entered Hifnakian.

In 1798, the vowel shift ended, and Traditional Hifnakian did not really change much, since it was literary Sprogjet Hifnakisk, and Sultanic Hifnakian evolved to Pre-Modern Hifnakian Dett' Hifnakiske Sprog, somewhat what it looks like today. Mostly Franquese and Kalmish words entered the vocabulary.

In 1901, PMH evolved to Modern Hifnakian and to this day, mostly Ingerish loanwords entered the vocabulary.
