Boynitz (IPA: /'bɔɪ̯nɪts/; Oceana: /beə̯nits/; formerly known in English as Oceana Emeralds) is a Lovian hamlet in the state of Oceana, in the Oceana Emeralds district. Boynitz is located within the valley along the Thatrensh river and has been built along a single road which crosses the river several times. It is a very isolated community. Boynitz used to be the only hamlet within the Oceana Emeralds district until Magna Augusta was established. In the hills surrounding Boynitz, several Protestant British farmers live.

Dialect Edit

Boynitz has one of the most archaic Oceana language dialects. It is traditionally grouped as a subdialect of the dialect of East Hills, as it is said to be derived from it. However, it has kept a lot of archaisms still present in Old Oceana, such as verb conjugation and gender; but it also has several innovations, which used to occur in the East Hills dialect as well, such as lenition and vowel harmony. The dialect is therefore still relatively close to Slovak. It has been noted that the dialect is severely endangered, as younger speakers prefer the "standard" East Hills dialect.

Now follows an example of a regular verb in the Boynitz dialect, compared to the East Hills dialect.

References and notes Edit

  1. Oceana Demographic Center (2014), data for the hamlet's area.
  2. Voting results for these elections may not be fully accurate, as some people were still registrated in Hurbanova and East Hills, due to the transition to the district system. As a result, the amount of registered voters in the hamlet is lower than the actual amount; while some votes in built-up areas are actually votes from hamlets.
