Introduction

Godix is set in an alternate history in which the Visigoths never became romanized before conquering the Iberian peninsula. Latin nearly died out in nearly all of Iberia before the Arabs came. As a result, the dominant language of a future unified Iberia is a Germanic language infuenced by Basque and to a greater extent Arabic, with a faint Celtic substratum and few latinate elements. The extant languages on the peninsula are Godix (working title), with a Celtic language influenced by Latin surviving in Galicia, Basque in the northeast and Iberian Occitan (the only Romance language in the peninsula) in Catalonia - all with Godix as a superstrate language instead of a latinate language.
