I'm not sure that the Scyths do speak Gothic; it may be simply that the territory is called "Scythia" even though occupied by Goths. "Bulgaria" is analogous: the inhabitants are not Bulgars and don't speak Bulgar (an extinct Turkic language).

The latter, I think. BTW, the people who speak Vlox are the Velos^c^ii, but I don't know much about their language.

Very little: a phonology and some con-orthography. See the list archives. -- John Cowan <jcowan@...> I amar prestar aen, han mathon ne nen, han mathon ne chae, a han noston ne 'wilith. --Galadriel, _LOTR:FOTR_
