Teedish (natively Tedic) is an international auxiliary language created by Adolf Hitler, who wished to introduce an easy lingua franca to be used among Germanic nations, but refused to use Esperanto since it was created by a Jew and sounded too Latin, even though Teedish is still considerably influenced by Esperanto grammar. Some commentators have labeled Teedish Germanic Esperanto. During the 1940s and 1950s, Hitler's efforts to promote Teedish internationally made it the official language of the Germanic League and an official auxiliary language in Germany, Austria-Hungary, the Netherlands, Belgium, Switzerland, Denmark, Sweden, Norway and Iceland. To this day, it is widely used in diplomacy among those nations, having replaced French and English.
Despite its success in continental Europe, Teedish did not achieve similar popularity in English-speaking countries and regions, including the British Islands, since it threatened the status of English as an international language. There were, however, a few British and American Hitlerist enthusiasts who learned and promoted Teedish in their native lands. Since the 1980s, Teedish has generated some eager interest in Australia.
Teedish has a letter-to-sound correspondence, i.e., every letter has always the same sound. All nouns end with -e if singular and -er if plural, adjectives end with -a and adverbs in -an. Verbs in the infinitive end with -en and have a very simple conjugation. The accusative case is optional but normally not used in Teedish.
