Yola is an extinct language that developed from Old English and was spoken in County Wexford, Ireland for about 700 years, from the 12th century to the 19th century.
Here is a sample, the first verse of a song.
Fade teil thee zo lournagh, co Joane, zo knaggee?
Th' weithest all curcagh, wafur, an cornee.
Lidge w'ouse an a milagh, tis gaay an louthee:
Huck nigher; y'art scuddeen; fartoo zo hachee?
which translates to
What ails you so melancholy, quoth John, so cross?
You seem all snappish, uneasy, and fretful.
Lie with us on the clover, 'tis fair and sheltered:
Come nearer; you're rubbing your back; why so ill tempered?
this info is mostly from Wikipedia, has anyone else heard of this language? I find it interesting as it is the only language (besides Scots, and I consider that a very thick dialect) that evolved from Old English, alongside, but separate from, English.
