v Riddlespeak
Riddlish, an expanded and elaborated form of pyrocide 's Riddlespeak & Balatro 's Gutterspeak.
Thanks pyrocide for the original idea, and with help with a lot of the words, much credit goes to him.
This is an amalgamation of various different slangs from Britain, Ireland, Whales and Scotland, I tried to keep out most contemporary slang. Nonetheless, a large percentage of these words have been made up by me, particularly places, professions, and most of the verbs, and yes, it is designed to be very confusing.
Also hello yoinked Ruu 's Aori design

Loud, roudy, and nearly impossible to decipher, you do not want to get caught up in an argument with somebody fluent in Riddlish.​
