General informationEdit

 Herder cant is an english based creole with an ayeyarokth substrum. It is primarly used by Yargostii herdsman whilst trading with english farmers. As it is spoken by a british nomadic people there are also influences from shelta and welsh.

The vowel system is simplified down to five vowels and dipthongs are turned to monothongs. The grammar is more aggulantive than standard english, there also simplified cases.
