List of Words Used
Notes
  1. "Second" as an ordinal number has been replaced by the word Twithe, abbreviated 2he. The unit of time is still called Second.

  2. Large numbers use the Linklong scale, where what is commonly referred to as "Billion" is called a Milliard, "Trillion" is called a Billion, "Quadrillion" is called a Billiard, and so on.

  3. Zero, Null, and Nought are all used to name the numeral 0, from least to most used.

  4. English writing in this canon uses two writing styles, the Newstyle and Oldstyle.

    Newstyle is simpler and at least a hundred times more generally used in writing, using the familiar 26-letter system.

    Oldstyle has the additional letters (), (), (), (), and ſ, while the letters G and W are instead written as Ȝ (ȝ) and Ƿ (ƿ), respectively, and the digraph Cƿ replaces "qu", as in cƿeen (queen), as the letter "Q" is removed. is used to represent the digraph "th", such as in inȝ (thing) and in alouȝh (although); is used in a similar fashion. ſ, which has no capital form, is only used to replace the first "s" when the letter is written twice, as in oneneſs (oneness) or in Ruſsland (Russland). The other letters have a more complicated usage.

    A byspel of text in Oldstyle and its writing in Newstyle:

    Our Fer in e Ȝospel of Mateƿ

    Our Father in the Gospel of Matthew

    Our Fer, ou art in Heaven
    y name ȝehalloƿed
    Be come ine riche
    Be done ine ƿill
    On Ear so as in Heaven

    Ȝive us our bread for tody
    And forȝive us our ȝuilts
    So as ƿe forȝive ose ƿho sin aȝainst us
    And ȝelead not us to costninȝ
    But leese us of evil

    Amen

    Our Father, thou art in Heaven
    Thy name gehallowed
    Be cometh thine riche
    Be doneth thine will
    On Earth so as in Heaven

    Give us our bread for today
    And forgive us our guilts
    So as we forgiveth those who sin against us
    And gelead not us to costning
    But leese us of evil

    Amen

  6. Germanic names brought into English through French or Latin have been mostly replaced with further Anglicised variants, such as Frithric (Frederick), Lothwig (Louis), Carl (Charles), Henric (Henry), and various others.

  7. Some useful affixes to note: -er, agent suffix; -ine, feminine suffix (-ess only used for some loanwords); -ish, adjective suffix; -ly, adjective and adverb suffix; -ing, present participle and gerund suffix.
