Toktok:Ol tok Siamanik
This article it's quite good. If somebody can translate we'll have a lot of information about Germanic languages. --Jeneme 09:01, 11 November 2007 (UTC)
Since it's not translated, I think this article should be deleted. The content is from what I can tell from enwp, and could be fetched either from an old page version there, or the deletion log here, if anyone is interested.
The article contained a few words in Tok Pisin, in this table under the header "Diachronic" (if there's any use for them: ido keep in mind that it might even be so that they are bad translations..):
General Note: The table shows the succession of the significant historical stages of each language (vertically), and their approximate groupings in subfamilies (horizontally). Horizontal sequence within each group does not imply a measure of greater or lesser similarity.

Note 1: There are conflicting opinions on the classification of Lombardic. Contrary to its isolated position in the table above, it has also been classified as close to either Upper German or Old Saxon. See the article on the Lombardic language for more information.
