Old Northish (dansk tunga) is a Teutonish tung spoken in Scandinavia until about 1300. As a Theedish speech, it is akin to Anglish, Dutch, and Netherlandish, and further akin to other Indo-Europish tungs like Latin, Greek, Sanskrit, and the Celtish and Slavish tungs. It sprang straight from Ornorthish and begat the nowish tungs Northwayish, Swedish, Icelandish, Danish, and Faroeish. Of these, Icelandish is the speech that has shifted the least, keeping all of the Old Northish's stavecraft.
