Many different things changed after Archaic Natraden had been seriously revamped. Archaic Natraden includes features that aren't possible in the newer language. There were differenced in grammar and ways of writing.

Æ and É[]

These letters didn't not exist in the old language. Instead,  they used a ēē as opposed to an Æ, this is how it evolved into the letters in the title:


Basically, it started off as so. When capitalised, it looked like Ee with a diagonal line ('macron') above it. This eventually led to the macron conjoining with the e. Furthermore, the macron was lowered and started to resemble an A; leaving AE. However, this was too similar to the character Æ so adopted it.

In the other evolution, the macron slowly gains a gradient. This went as far as to snap it in half and the first e now had an acute accent. Thus is looked like:  éē. However, this still made the same sound as Æ so shortened it. Since É was not in the alphabet then, it was the perfect letter to displayed the shortened sound of Æ.


SInce infinitives end in llé, how would it have been in archaic Natraden? É did not exist. The stem would have just been lle. Old verbs actually conjugated to number and person though in the revamp was deemed unnecessary and the conjugation was scrapped.


The numbers were different too! They were more... germanic. They are as follows:

  • Nero
  • Ejn
  • Zēt
  • Trēē
  • Fōw
  • Fejw
  • Ces
  • Sejfn
  • Akt
  • Nejn
  • Dajt
  • Elår
  • Telf
  • Dajt-Trēē
  • Dajt-Fōw

and so on...
