Sfatul of Vladislavia
Verd'landian (vdl. Vẽrdɩlandiɩ Spriga; old vdl. Vэrdїlandiї Spriga) - is the official language of Republic of Vladislavia. It is constructed by founder of Vladislavia, and regulating by him.
Verd'landian is young language, and has only basic grammar with 600 recorded words in dictionary.
The first language, created by Chokin, was "Redwallian". It was in service by redwallian fanfictional universe of Vladislav.
But after 3 reforms of universe, which was almost separated from Redwall and became a Verd'land in 2015, the language was reformed too, and transfromed into Verd'landian. In the same time, the first original words were recorded in electronic vocabulary. This language became more independent from existing ones.
On 17th August 2017, the alphabet was reformed, and language has de-facto divided at Verd'landian and Vladislavian parts.
Verd'landian language - is mix of Romanian, German and Russian in vocabulary base, and mix of Russian and English in grammar. But also this language has elements of Celtic, Latin, Lithuanian, Albanian and other languages.
Problems of language
- Grammatical rules are born spontaneously, and their amount is too small to be able to speak freely.
- Rules aren't recorded. Studying is almost impossible.
- Without knowing of Russian and English, logic of Verd'landian language is quite hard for understanding.
- This language should be more puristic - at this moment, it has a plenty of words, imported from German and Latin. This problem would be fixed as soon as possible.

In Verd'landian, conjugation of nouns isn't important - for expression of reference of one object to other object, preposition "Dẽ" or "Of" is enough. But in literary language there is special "Doviɩ visedar" (Second case) for this purposes. It changes noun's suffix to "...lor". If letter interferes this action, between it and new suffix vowels "e", "ẽ" and "i" should be putted.
Also, there is "Triɩ visedar" (Third case) for pointing of passive form (questions "By what?" and "By who?").
|Anitiɩ Visedar||Nominative||Visedar (Case), Laɩv (Ship), Lihɩ (Town/City), Librul (Book), Mẽra (Sea)|

|Triɩ Visedar||Passive form||Visedaruluɩ, Laɩvẽluɩ, Liheluɩ, Libruluɩ, Mẽriluɩ|
Vigoariɩ dalagerut (Urging form)
Reformed language took some suffixes instead of old "tэ":
- "...var" - to one person. (Fačevar sẽ! - Do this!)
- "...zi" - to group of persons. (Fačezi sẽ! - (all you) Do this!)
New rule, which signs morphing of verb's suffix, if this verb should answer the question "what doing?", "what did?" and "what will doing?" in complicated sentences.
|What was doing?\What did?||"...mar"|
|What will doing?\What will do?||"...limt"|
