We need to pull the other branches, esp. Germanic and Balto-Slavic in, since we know those branches quite well in Ill Bethisad.

The "Graphical map" still needs to be updated for Xliponian. Kyrmse 15:32, 5 Jul 2005 (PDT)

In Calabria they speak a fusion language of Byzantine Greek & Italian. Would that be considered a Hellenic language? Misterxeight 23:36, 20 September 2008 (UTC)

It's apparently a descendant of Koine, though it seems to have retained some Doric (i.e., not Doric) features. At least according to Wikipedia. There are only about 40000 speakers in two small communities. I doubt their numbers would be any higher in IB, though some cultural exchange between Greece and Greater Greece might take place in the modern era. Certainly some singing groups from KTS / Magna Grecia are popular both in the Italies and in Greece! The Kingdom of the Two Sicilies recognises these communities as official ethnic minorities; and of course, they are Sicilians, not Greeks. Elemtilas 01:30, 21 September 2008 (UTC)
