Actually, my Hesperic family is a candidate for the language of ancient Atlantis. My personal opinion about the Atlantis myth is that Atlantis was an ancient civilization that existed on the British Isles prior to the arrival of the Celts. It is the same people who surface in Celtic and Germanic mythology as "Elves", and Hesperic is their language. Of course, I don't claim that Hesperic is indeed what was spoken in Britain back then, it is just my speculative fancy about what that language *could* have been like. Greetings, Jörg.
