This language is a very archaic form of Germanic. The tribe left the Proto-Germanic Urheimat (southern Scandinavia) c. 300 BC. Living on a very long chain-like (fictional) archepelago (about midway between  NW Europe & Canada. It's a long, narrow archepelago, oriented north-south. It extends from 60 deg N to 42 deg N) they have been in virtual total linguistic isolation for years. They share with Icelanders the desire to keep their tongue, culture & gene-pool pure.

In English, their language is called "Suebo-Gothonic", ["SG"] The endonym is "swebisk-gutiska" among other names.

SG is so archaic, like Gothic, is separated from the "fold" before umlaut, rhotacism, Z-deletion, etc.

It is a highly synthetic (fusional) language, typical of Indo-European. Its nouns, pronouns, determiners, adjectives are inflected for case (five productive cases, two defective cases), number (singular & plural, both productive & a moribund dual) & three genders (grammatical gender, masculine, feminine & neuter. 

Verbs: Have; (all synthetic) 1)  Three voices (active, passive, middle-voice or "medio-passive", defective), 2) Three moods (indicaticative, subjunctive/optative, imperative), 3) Two synthetic tenses, non-past [present] & preterite. Several paraphrastic tenses/aspects. The verb's principle-parts are: infinitive, bare-stem, inflected infinitive, participles, passive & present. Verbs are typical of IE & Gmc. They conjugate for three persons, three numbers (sing., dual,, plur.). There are about a dozen noun-classes, e.g., strong, weak, thematic, athematic, preterito-present, the deponent subjunctive verb "will" 'willanan', anomolous,etc.
