Useful Wightian phrases

A collection of useful phrases in Wightian, a constructed language devised in the mid-1970s by Pat Hudson's father, who believed that the Isle of Wight, an island off the south coast of England, should have its own language. Wightian is spoken by five people and is a mixture of Anglo-Saxon and Maltese, with most of the Maltese words anglified, and some words from Old Swedish. The word order is based on Dutch.
