About Old Vóddan The North Germanic child of  Kaimen Kēling. Features a radically simplified verb system, with the loss of the distinction between dual and plural forms. Extensive umlaut has caused the development of front rounded vowels, and the length distinction in vowels has been augmented by a quality distinction, with most short vowels being lax and most long vowels being tense.
