Dradelian English is a dialect of English which is official in Dradelia. It was developed from the words which where in common use amongst Dradelian Citizens. It's prononcations are very similar to those found in English dialect spoken in North East England due to the fact Dradelia is an enclave of the North East region of England. However, Dradelian English does not include Geordie words since the use of Geordie words are uncommon amongst Dradelian people.
Differences from Standard English
The Dradelian English alpahbet is different since it contains 27 letters rather than the 26 found in standard English. This is due to the addition of the letter Ý, known as "Y vowel", which is used when a Y produces a vowel sound. The letter W is known as "Double V" rather than "Double U", however, many Dradelian English speakers reffer to W as "Double U".

|Minuscule forms (also called lowercase or small letters)|
Dradelia English pronouncations are the same as Northern English, or more specifically County Durham prononcations. This is due to the the fact Dradelia is surrounded by County Durham. As a result words such as "bath", "laugh", "path" are pronounced with /æ/ like North East English, rather/ɑ(ː)/ which is found in Southern British English. The only notable differing pronunciation from British English is that "Bearpark" is pronounced /ɓɛːrpʼɑːrx/ as opposed to the British /bɛr pɑrk/.
