Venedic (lęgwa wenedka, wenedyk) is a language of the Lechitic subgroup of the Slavo-Romance languages, used throughout Veneda(being that country's official language) and the North American League(as one of its official languages) and by Venedic minorities in other countries. Its written standard is the Venedic alphabet, which corresponds to the Latin alphabet with several additions.
Ever since the fall of the Roman Empire and its codification by Wars I, a rich literature has developed over the centuries, and the language is currently the largest, in terms of speakers, of the Slavo-Romance group.
Geographic distribution Edit
Venedic is mainly spoken in Veneda. Veneda is one of the most linguistically homogeneous European countries; nearly 97% of Veneda's citizens declare Venedic as their mother tongue. Elsewhere, ethnic Veneds constitute large minorities in Lithuania, Belarus, and Ukraine – Venedic is the most widely used minority language in Lithuania's Vilnius County (26% of the population, according to the 2001 census results); in Ukraine it is most common in the Lviv and Lutsk regions, while in Western Belarus it is used by the significant Venedic minority especially in the Brest and Grodno regions.
In the North American League, it is mainly spoken around areas that used to be part of the Venedo-Silesian Atlantic League. 64% of the population in Nowa Mazowia, Trazluwania, Czysluwania, Karolina, and Paź Czeróky prefactures use Venedic as a mother tongue, while Wyrżynia and New Silesia have some Venedic minorites (23 and 34 precent respectively). There are some Venedic-speaking minorities in Nouvelle-Flandre, Basse-Valoisie, Tuskigi, Dongji, and Hockenheim prefactures, due in most part to Venedic migration from the Atlantic League prefactures.
There are also significant numbers of Venedic speakers among Venedic emigrants and their descendants in many other countries, including Argentia, Aragon, Australia, Austria, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Bohemia, Brazil, Bulgaria, Burgundy, Denmark, Estonia, the Faroe Islands, Finland, France, Germany, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, the Latin Empire, Latvia, Lotharia, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Pádracia, Romania, Russia, Serbia, Silesia, Slevania, Spain, Sweden, Ukraine, the UAE, and Uruguai
