About Giskain Kēl The Gothic child of  Kaimen Kēling. Features include:

  • substantial register of loanwords from Greek and Latin
  • massive syncope, leading to more fusional morphology including multiple noun declension classes
  • collapse of singular and plural locatives in most declension classes
  • collapse of dative and genitive forms in most declension classes
  • word order gradually becoming more head-initial: prepositions replacing postpositions, adjectives and genitives following the noun
