About Old Edysian Old Edysian is an Indo European language and the parent of the foundation language for the tongues of the Edysian empire. It is the language spoken by the Edysian nomads before their cambionization and formed the superstrate in the creole language known as Middle Edyssian, also known as Imperial Edyssian. The five languages of the modern Edyssian empire as well as Common Edyssian are all descended from Middle Edyssian.
Old Edyssian, while not contemporaneous with Old Kumasi, forms an isogloss with it, sharing a few unusual sound changes and lexical items not found in other branches of Indo European.
