Middel Gastisc(Modern English: Middle Gastish) is a later form of Old Gastish. The most notable difference is that it is the first true comprehensible relative... Of course, the change happened over time, but Middle Gastish is generally considered around the renaissance and is standardized.
The alphabet is Latin. Runic forms eventually faded. It features a few more characters than the modern language.
A, Æ, P, B, C, J, T, D, Þ, Ð, E, F, V, K, G, Ȝ, H, I, L, M, N, O, Œ, R, S, Z, U, Ƕ, Ƿ
The language has three genders(masculine, neuter, and feminine). It also holds four fully inflected cases(Nominative, Accusative, Genitive, and Dative)
The definite features the Proto-Germanic t-stem forms in the masculine and feminine oblique cases that are not featured in Modern Gastish.
Note that the proximal differs greatly from Modern Gastish's set..
Besides the irregulars, these are the standardized forms
|Strong (S) Declension|
|Weak (N) Declension|
|Nonstandard cases||Any class|
archaic and mock
E-shift is a process that occured during the transition from Old Gastish. Mark that it is not I-Mutation which historically occured much earlier. In this process, many original /i/ (ee) sounds became /aɪ/ (ei) sounds. "Ees", for example, became Eis, similar to the process in English and German.
