    The linguistic reality behind the most recent iteration of AC games. Bringing together Old West Norse, Old English, Gaelic and Welsh, as an accurate representation of the multiethnic status of Ancient Britain.

    The thing I absolutely love about Iroquoian languages is their almost complete lack of labial consonants. Also, the glide "w" and the rounded vowels are weakly rounded, to fit the nearly "lip-less" pattern.
    Fascinating how differently some languages evolve.
