Im on it.this thread should be revitalized
It doesnt have to be exactly ethnic cleansing the french brough the egyptiotes back into egypt forming a new dialect of greek with more french influence and the egyptiotes became a majority because the french encouraged them to have more children and just like great britain also discouraged egyptiolan arabicThe most densely-populated part of Egypt is largely Greek-, French-, or English-speaking, with a POD in 1956?? That's some extensive ethnic cleansing.
The thing is, the Egyptiotes did not make up that much of the population. This is on the scale of making Metro Constantinople Greek Speaking after the '55 Riots.It doesnt have to be exactly ethnic cleansing the french brough the egyptiotes back into egypt forming a new dialect of greek with more french influence and the egyptiotes became a majority because the french encouraged them to have more children and just like great britain also discouraged egyptiolan arabic
Cherokee/Tsalagi is written in a mainly Syllabic script, with 86 characters IIRC...Language: Tetchoquin
Family: Dene-Yeneseian -> Na-Dene -> Athabaskan -> Eastern Athabaskan
Writing script: Aboriginal syllabics, Latin script
Loanwords: A few Siouan and Algonquian loanwords and some recent French and English loanwords
History: The Tetchoquin language separated from other Athabaskan languages around 1000, when several bands began migrating east across the boreal forest. As the Mississippian civilisation collapsed due to drought and later epidemics, the Tetchoquin emerged as one of several groups who inhabited the area in their place, migrating to their current home in northern Missouri and central Illinois along the Mississippi River (or in their language, "Tetchoque", hence their endonym Tetchoquin) by around 1500. Despite their unique language, they are closely related genetically and culturally to neighbouring American Indian groups of Siouan and Algonquian stock.
The language has remained remarkably pure over the centuries, with many terms common to other Athabaskan languages reappropriated to fit the more agricultural lifestyle of the Tetchoquin peoples as well as their more southerly location compared to their northern kin. There are very few loanwords from their Siouan or Algonquian neighbours. However, the language borrowed many terms from French and English trappers, missionaries, and others who interacted with them starting in the late 17th century.
Tetchoquin is the only American Indian language in the United States written primarily in syllabics thanks to missionary work which introduced the syllabics as a means of encouraging literacy. Latin script was introduced to Tetchoquin and saw some use in the early 20th century, but language revival efforts center around teaching the syllabics as a point of tribal pride and heritage.
Despite the geographic separation, it is closely related to the Denitina language of Michigan and Canada and together they form the Eastern Athabaskan branch of the Athabaskan languages. Among the first Athabaskan languages to be encountered by Euroamericans, "Tetchoquinic" was at one point a common name for the Athabaskan (or Dene) family, especially among American linguists.
