Language

The Yamassic dialect has some strong ties to Semitic and other languages due to the assimilation and/or voluntary affiliation with immigrants, visitors, and other indigenous peoples such as the children of the transcontinental and pre-colonial Moors (including but not limited to the Catholic, Islamic, and Jewish Moriscos, Moros, Morenos, etc who lived here prior to and under the guise of being labeled "Spanish" and "savages" throughout North, Central, and South America as well as the surrounding islands,) Africans (enslaved and free), and other indigenous people who chose to stay here (i.e. Asians who crossed the Bering Straights, along with indigenous people who inhabited "Canada" prior to European appearances), and, come here from elsewhere prior to any European explorations."
