Swedanorwenglish (SDN) is a tongue that, although is unintelligible to the foreign ear, can be easily learned. It is a language that is used for secret communication purposes. It is mainly based off of the Germanic and Scandinavian languages, plus influences from Latin.

PhonologyEdit

SDN has 29 letters, with three letters added to the Latin alphabet. Q, X, and W are rarely, if ever, used.
