Old Gutnish was the speech of Old Norse that was spoken on the iland of Gotland. It shows enough otherlinesses from the Old East Nordish speeches of Old Swedish and Old Danish that it is thought to be a sundry offshoot.

The root of Gut is the same as in Goth and it is often said that the tung has alikenesses with the Gothish tung, the most well-known sake being that Gothish and Gutnish called bot grown-up and young sheep lamb. These alikenesses have led teachchildren such as Elias Wessén and Dietrich Hoffmann to believe that Old Gutnish is the most nearly akin to Gothish.

The Old Nordish twiselfloud au (as in auga "eye") stayed on in Old West Nordish, while in, say, Old Swedish - midland speeches being standouts - it became the oneslefloud , that is, a long make of ô = ǫ, (ốga). Likewise the twiselfloud ai in bain (stone) stayed on in Old West Nordish, while in Old Swedish it became é (bén). Whereas Old West Nordish had the ey twiselfloud (and, say, Old Swedish had the oneselfloud ǿ) Old Gutnish had oy.

Þissi Þjelvar hafði ann sun sum hít Hafði. En Hafða kuna hít Hvíta Stjerna. Þaun tú byggðu fyrsti á Gutlandi. Fyrstu nátt sum þaun saman svafu þá droymdi henni draumr; só sum þrír ormar varin slungnir saman í barmi hennar, ok þýtti henni sum þair skriðin ýr barmi hennar. Þinna draum segði han firi Hafða bónda sínum. Hann raið draum þinna só: "Alt ir baugum bundit, bóland al þitta varða uk fáum þría syni aiga." Þaim gaf hann namn, allum ófýddum; Guti, al Gutland aiga; Graipr, al annar haita; ok Gunnfjaun þriði. Þair skiptu síðan Gutlandi í þría þriðjunga, só at Graipr þann eldsti laut norðasta þriðjung, ok Guti miðal þriðjung, en Gunnfjaun þann yngsti laut sunnarsta. Síðan, af þissum þrim aukaðis fulk í Gutlandi sum mikit um langan tíma at land elpti þaim ai alla fýða. Þá lutaðu þair bort af landi hvert þriðja þjauð só at alt skuldu þair aiga ok mið sír bort hafa sum þair ufan jorðar áttu.

Oversetting:

This Thielvar had a son called Hafthi. And Hafthi's wife was called Whitestar. Those two were the first to settle on Gotland. When they slept there for the first night, she dreamed that three snakes lay in her lap. She told this to Hafthi. He aread her dream like this: "Everything is bound with bangles, this iland will be lived in, and you will bear three sons." Although, they were not yet born, he named them Guti, who would own the iland, Graip and Gunfiaun. The sons clove the iland into three landships, so that Graip who was the eldest took the north, Guti the middle and Gunfjaun, who was the youngest took the southern third. After a long time, their offspring became so fulsome that the iland could not feed all of them. They drew lots and every third ilander had to leave. They could keep everything they owned but the land.
