Amerykan (Amerysk) is a planned language (invented language) developed by Paal-Eirik
Filssunu beginning in 1979. It is composed of Saxon and Scandinavian words. The language
is intended to serve as a unifying cultural factor for North American adherents of
Asatru, (also called Odinism and Norse Paganism), the folk-religion of Northern Europe
and of those of Northern European heritage.
How I found Amerysk
Some time ago I met a fellow Odinist called Oak--- the original Oak, he points out--- who gave me a batch of old papers in regard to our faith. Included in this was the booklet Snaekk and Skryf Amerysk by Paal-Eirik Filsunu.
As a person who had an interest in other planned languages, I was interested. I thought this work deserved to be passed on. This web site is the result. It is done with respect to the acheivements and rights of Amerysk creator Paal-Eirik Filsunu.
The What and Why of Planned Languages What are planned languages? Why do some people learn them?
