Skogsprac is a language originating amongst Germanic tribes living in wooded lands on the Cimbrian penninsula.

History and DialectsEdit

As trade and communication between the different tribes of the Cimbrian penninsula increased, they began to identify as a singular people under the name "Skogsfolk". The dialects spoken by these people have remained regionally and steadily diverged with one written language conceived to unify and standarise them.

GrammarEdit

NounsEdit

All nouns are sorted into two genders: common and neuter. The common gender is a merger of the historical masculine and feminine genders and thus comprises the majority of nouns.

As nouns are only declined for number, the nouns can be divided first by gender and next by plural ending. The three regular plural endings are "-am" and "-om". In fluent speech, they can both be reduced to /əm/.
