The Helwiccisc language, more commonly referred to as Helwiccisc, is a constructed Germanic language used rarely in certain parts of the Jarldom of Hjalvik, or the Helwiccisc Erldaam. It is used for recounting tales and some official reports. Helwiccisc was directly developed from Proto-Germanic meaning it is quite different from most other Germanic languages, although the orthography was inspired by both Old English and Gothic.
