In the High Empire of Pacem, English is an official language alongside Welsh, Icelandic, and Irish Gaelic. Throughout Pacemian history, this English has evolved to be closer to foreign languages, as well as other dialects of English. Pacemian English evolved primarily from British English and American English.
