HistoryEdit

After the fall of many of the 21st & 22nd century powers, continuing protectionism, isolationism, and opposition to globalization in America shatters the English language. But with the openness, standardization, and cooperation of the 26 century upon them, the New North American Union (N.A.U.) has joined the ranks of most United Nations countries in their standard language: 24th century Academic English. But the everyday language of the new N.A.U. is the unwritten ʔõɽ̃ekɨɽɜ̃mɨʔ mɜʁɨkɜ̃, otherwise known as sɭɜ̃n.
