Ambrish (in Ambrish: Ammbrixx) is a Indo-European language the traditional native language of the Ambrish or Ambrian people, spoken primarily in Ambria (Ammbrea), where it is the official and majority language, and as an unofficial minority language in some other mostly neighboring countries, near their Ambrian borders.

Note that the term Ambrish is used primarily to refer to the language and to the ethnic group, whereas Ambrian refers primarily to the land and and the political entity of Ambrian. The terms are occasionally used interchangeably, but this is often viewed as incorrect usage.

Orthographical notes:

  1. Long vowels (eɪ , i, aɪ, oʊ, u ) are formed by a single instance of the vowel character, either finially or followed by a single consonant. Short vowels (ɑ, ɛ, ɪ, ɒ, ʌ,) are written as followed by a double consonant or the vowel itself may be doubled if the short vowel sound is finial or, rarely, if necessary to clarify the pronunciation.
  2. Qq, pronounced θ (th as teeth) was originally written as Þþ in Ambrish, and sometimes still is, though almost always in handwriting and rarely in typeface. Qq was adopted because it is readily available in typeface, was not previously ised in Ambrish writing, and because the lowercase q looked a lot like a backwards þ. The name of the letter is pronounced as thee (like the end of Timothy).
  3. Yy, pronounced ð (th as teethe) was originally written as Ðð in Ambrish, and sometimes still is, though almost always in handwriting and rarely in typeface. Yy was adopted because it is readily available in typeface, was not previously ised in Ambrish writing, and because the lowercase y looked a bit like ð. The name of the letter is pronounced as thee (like the emphatic pronunciation of the word the - with a long e sound).
  4. The parenthetical letters in the third row of letters are not considered letters in their own right. they are rather the Ambrish way of writing the sounds listed below them.
