Where is it spoken? Mosella?
Not have really thought that seriously yet, but I guess this location works
It had a slightly French feel, although more conservative than French.

Look into Walloon — supposedly those Romance speakers who settled in the Moselle came from there.

Re: The Quintessential 5th Conversation Thread

I have Aspergers and can confirm that I cannot stick to a conlang long enough to form anything out of it.

Although I've also been told I have ADD, so maybe it's that.

Re: Altlang Ideas Discussion

Idea: Romance language with a really strong Germanic superstrate initially, then the region comes under strong Polish and other Slavic influence. Though Germanic influence on my romlang isn't particularly strong, there were Germanics amongst the Avars as well as Slavs, and while the Slavs came to d...

Re: Yay or Nay?

Hey guys. So I am changing the name of my Romlang, Pelsodian, to Castellian, based around the fact that many nearby Dalmatian languages also take their name from the city they are from. such as Ragusean from Ragusa. (In my example, it is from the modern Hungarian city of Keszthely, which would be f...

Re: La Ziunga: a taste of a romlang

One thing I did try to do was introduce emphatics; but I couldn't really think of a good, reasonable way. [kt clusters are already eliminated, after all]. I don't think it to be too implausible to introduce emphatics through /kt/, /ks/ for example, Proto-Romance treated these clusters differently. ...

Re: La Ziunga: a taste of a romlang

Well, sorry it's not very good. Although I think it's hard to have anything be "coherent" when you have more than four or five words - after all, it's not as though "aeon" and "texts" have identical phonotactics either... aelfwine: interesting - why Malta?

Re: (Conlangs) Q&A Thread - Quick questions go here

How did the Romance languages develop their conjugated forms of habeo? There's no trace of the v~b in the singular forms in most Romance languages and it seems almost like they just kept the endings. A lot of unstressed, voiced consonants dropped in Proto-Romance. Considering the fact that the /b/ ...

Re: Sound Changes

It's likely that /ks/ was something like [ʲks] in Proto-Romance. Eastern Romance fronted the initial segment to /p/ whilst Western Romance syncoped the segment and left the glide as /js/. So fronting it half way to /t/ and merging it with /ts/ is also quite plausible, so is palatalizing it further t...

I was thinking of an Indo-European altlang that developed into a triconsonantal root lang. Maybe if it moved into the right direction? It looks to likely to not make a conlang of it. So much ablaut.
Ask Isfendil. That sounds like it could easily exist in North Africa.

A lot of alt history ideas for romlangs is on the teach and share guides thread. Last couple of pages, I think. Starting at the fourth century should be fine, most Latin was uniform up until that point anyway. Just introduce Vulgar Latin changes before primitive irish ones. If you want something mor...

Re: What did you accomplish today?

AFAICT all romlangs mark gender in articles so that's not really surprising. Marking gender only in articles is a more interesting development. In my opinion marking gender only in articles would make the articles less likely to be dropped, due to having more semantic load. Like for instance vernac...
