I'll try to get something together for Sjoftenk.

I just liked the sound of it ;o) There is no etymology for it- really it's
just a "working title" until I get around to conculturing for it and I
didn't want yet another language name based on the words "latin" or "romance".

Brithenig, Kerno and Wenedyk would all have been challenging for me if only
other people hadn't got there first ;o) if you know what I mean.

Rhendrin is spoken in the same conworld as Carashan and Aredos but is
unrelated to them. It is spoken to the north of the Carashan-speakers. A

The language is supposed to resemble a mixture of Irish and Sindarin, and
the grammar matches that somewhat.

Can't miss it in Wenedyk ;o)
