New Scandic (Nyskandisk) is the language spoken in Østermark. It devolved from the Scandic spoken in Scandmark in the 1200s. It is also closely related to Norlensk. Although technically a separate language with its own orthography, pronunciation and some unique vocabulary, Scandic and New Scandic are for the most part mutually intelligible for most speakers of the two languages.

Aulander

Although the Aulander spoken in Orinoco's Aulander islands is considered a separate language, technically speaking it is a dialect of New Scandic.
