2. Old World Human

This language is more of a personal - auxlang, than an artlang.
It's based on Korean, German, English and Polish roots. i also decided to include random Internet, Lating and Japanes (picked up from anime...) words.
The purpuse of this is a language sounding human, but not reallly recognizable.
It's is funny because I understand it 100%, but could not write it.
I just repurpused it in order to be used in my story.
