Without proper rendering support, you may see question marks, boxes, or other symbols instead of Unicode characters.For an introductory guide on IPA symbols, see Help: IPA.Gothic is an extinct East Germanic language that was spoken by the Goths.It is known primarily from the Codex Argenteus, a sixth-century copy of a fourth-century Bible translation, and is the only East Germanic language with a sizable text corpus.All others, including Burgundian and Vandalic, are known, if at all, only from proper names that survived in historical accounts, and from loanwords in other languages such as Portuguese, Spanish, and French.As a Germanic language, Gothic is a part of the Indo-European language family.
The language survived as a domestic language in the Iberian peninsula (modern Spain and Portugal) as late as the eighth century.Gothic-seeming terms are found in manuscripts subsequent to this date, but these may or may not belong to the same language.In particular, a language known as Crimean Gothic survived in the lower Danube area and in isolated mountain regions in Crimea.Lacking certain sound changes characteristic of Gothic, Crimean Gothic cannot, however, be a lineal descendant of Bible Gothic.
Only a few documents in Gothic survive, not enough for completely reconstructing the language.
Most Gothic corpora are translations or glosses of other languages (namely, Greek), so foreign linguistic elements most certainly influenced the texts.
