Græcian (UK: /ˈɡrsiən/, US: /ˈɡrʃən/; Græcian: TBD, //), also scientifically known as Neo-Italic, Neo-Italo-Celtic, Neo-Celtitalic or Græco-Italic, is a constructed, artistic language specifically designed for the inhabitants of the Voivodeship of Magna Græcia.

History

In an attempt to strengthen the Græcian identity, the Governor of Græcia appointed selected language construction specialists from the National Hermodicean Academy of Linguistics of Græcia, in order to combine core elements from two non-Indo-European languages (Etruscan and Lemnian, both related), three IE languages (Epic Greek and two Italic languages, Oscan and Umbrian), as well as two proto-languages (namely Proto-Celtic and Proto-Italic). This task will be supervised by His Excellency The Governor, who will also take part in this difficult effort. This will be the second constructed language to be used in Græcia, after South Ruthenian, which is the official language of the borough of Čěrneś.
