Map Thread XIX


~
A pretty simple map compared to the rest of my stuff, of the Yamato Confederation of Earth98 (I believe if you go on to r/imaginarymaps a lot, you should've seen some other stuff from the Earth98 project). This was mostly a test to see how much a project can survive being done through two art programs, Inkscape and Illustrator.
There seem to be two Niigata provinces(?). Two of them with a (I presume) Capital cities.
 
Reminding myself of the dialect continuum triangle it appears we're both right. Not helped by locative naming and renaming.
When i made the made I imagine that all of the “German” languages as a whole were basically a really large dialect continuum. The farther away from each other a speaker of “German” the less likely they are to understand. A Doetsch speaker in the Rhone valley would not be able to understand a Saxon or a Bavarian, but a Doestch speaker in the Moselle valley would be able to understand pretty much all of the mainland accents somewhat. A Theotish speaker could understand a Anglic speaker easily and a Frisian or Saxon somewhat but would have no idea what a Doetsch speaker is saying.

If this is Earth-98, then Hatsunia must be Earth-39.

Well, languages are naturally dialect continuums.
The problem we had was how to get the "oe" sound as that didn't develop from the "iu" diphthong OTL. It's a possible future development from the standard "oi" of written <eu> (and came from "ui") but hasn't happened yet.
 
A map of Italy with the logos of the brands owned by Audi AG placed according to their geographic location.
In this TL, VW AG subsequently became the second largest automotive employer in Italy.

N.B.: In my TL, Italy kept Istria.
