That is working on the theory that the Kings of Scotland there was successful in wresting the North Sea Islands from the Norse. The Shetlands could be a Scandanavian Island Republic like Iceland, or Greenland (I think Greenland's independent of Denmark now, but I could be wrong), or even still an autonomous part of Denmark like the Faroes. A German Soundshift language should be made quite clear that it isn't Germanech. Germanech occurs because the Roman Empire and its coloniae extended further into Germania than occured *here*. That effects how history turns out. Rather than repeat that I would accept that a German tribe such as the Bayavari (sic) change from OHG to VL and still keep the same sound changes. Let's see if this get's through. - andrew. -- Andrew Smith, Intheologus Lent: Living in Borrowed Time ----- End forwarded message ----- [PS: I understand Germanech to be Rheimeier's Germanic-Romance conlang, as differentiated from Hailman's.] Padraic.
