Uletarephian Language Group

Languages in this group are related to one another due to the close proximity of Uletha and Tarephia for which this language group is named. Languages from this group are thought to be the origin for many language forms including Caeltig, Gaermanic, Hellanisian, Latin and other language groups.

  • Caeltig

This subgroup is related to early Proto-Ulethan language forms from early settlers in Archanta. Due to the origin of this language being Ulethan in nature it it not considered an Archantan Dialect. Cambric, Eirie Caeltig These languages are similar to Indo-Germanic language styles common in northern and western European countries.

  • Gaermanic. These languages are similar to Indo-Germanic language styles common in northern and western European countries. These languages are grouped into the Borealic group of languages common to the northern part of the continent of Uletha This language group consists of three language subgroupings:
    • Northern Gaermanic. These languages are mostly similar to the Scandinavian languages found on earth. These languages evolve out of the low Gaermanic languages that were common around ancient northern Ulethan tribes. Common Northern Germanic languages include Skandisk, Vinnish, Havvish,Engsch and Eäßnordælåndic.
    • Middle or High Gaermanic. As Gaermanic languages developed newer medal and highland dialects were created. These eventually evolve into their own individual languages. These languages are probably the closest to the Germanic languages found on earth, also known as western Germanic languages. Current languages include: Bayese, Gaerman, High Astrasian, Kalmish, Mergan, Pollonian, Ree.
    • Low Gaermanic. This subgroup of languages includes common languages such as: Alvedic, Eshen, Ingerish, sassn, Wiwaxish and Zylandian. These languages have since found their way around the world as people have emigrated to new lands around the globe. These languages were typically, in in northern Uletha Lowlands, and were common among the ancient Gaermanic tribes who lived in this part of the world. This particular route of language lead to the development of middle and high Gaermanic languages as well as the northern Gaermanic tongues that are common today.
    • Gaermanic pidgin languages. Includes pidgin language Dontdū of the oceanic island of Udenarrat.
  • Hellanisian
