      There are some Vandal language ruins mostly
      personal names. They have been analysed in
      a lengthy article ("Die wandalischen Sprachreste")
      published at the end of the 19th century. Lombardic
      is mainly preserved also in personal names as is
      Burgundian and Gepidic and Rugian (all these
      languages are designated "Truemmersprachen" in
      German research = "eine vollstaendige Sprache, von der
      uns aber nur Fragmente zugaenglich sind". In this
      respect the Crimean Gothic is also designate a "ruin
      language".

      As Crimean Gothic has been discussed on the list
      I can recommend

      Volume 3 _Germanische Rest- und Truemmersprachen_
      of _Ergaenzungsbaende zum Reallexikon der
      Germanischen Altertumskunde_. (Hrsg. H.Beck. Berlin,
      New York: Walter de Gruyter, 1989.

      Here there is a translation of Busbeq's report in Latin
      into German on the Crimean Goths and their language.

      Gothic greetings
