My guess is that we should have a separate Southern Italian subgroup, to which Napolitan and Sicilian would belong. IJzeren Jan 01:42, 12 Mar 2005 (PST)

I agree...I think there would be an Italian or other such name for that whole subgrouping. It seems to mee that in IB there's a great deal more of dialectical acceptance. BoArthur

Mozarabian

Does the Mozarabian language still exist *there*? --Sikulu 03:03, 19 May 2006 (PDT)

Where did it exist *here*? BoArthur 06:25, 19 May 2006 (PDT)

Spain. Steg might have an opinion on the subject --Marc Pasquin 09:15, 19 May 2006 (PDT)
More specifically, southern Spain, and Portugal (there were Mozarabic dialects in Portugal), in the areas under the strongest influence of the Muslim kingdoms. Doobieous 13:51, 19 May 2006 (PDT)
Unlikely. I suspect they would have disappeared in the aftermath of the Reconquista, just like *here*. Elemtilas 17:03, 19 May 2006 (PDT)

Romance Branches

I'd like to suggest that instead of having South Central, North Central, etc. we re-visit the branching of the IB Romance family tree.

I'd like to suggest that we have a Southern Branch (which could possibly include Xliponian and Sardinian), a Central Branch (lumping together the North Central and South Central (and branch it underneath the header, including Lessinu and Jovian and Lombard), and keep the rest of Western Romance's sub-branches as presently constituted. What say ye? BoArthur 00:06, 13 February 2009 (UTC)

Eastern Romance

On that huge map of IB Languages that BoArthur made, it puts Romanian under the Central branch of Romance languages, however Aromanian is put under the Eastern branch. Is IB Romanian different from *here's? Just wondering cause I've been working on my own little version of Istro-Romanian. Geofism 9:44 6th May 2009 AEST

Many things were left as they were, here, as QAA -- if you've "discovered" something new that would lead to a reclassification, we can make changes...BoArthur 13:57, 6 May 2009 (UTC)

Romanian

I was wondering, the flag of the Romanian Federation has inscription in both latin and cirillic alphabets. Possibly both are used for writing Romanian language, right? I sugest Romanians in Oltenia to write in latin script, due their country was part of Hungary until 1918. On the other hand I suggest Moldovans and Muntenians to write in cirillic script, because Moldavia was part of the Russian Empire and Muntenia is bordering Bulgaria. So possibly romanian currency, for example, would have both scripts and perhaps stamps that are much smaller pieces of paper would be released in latin and cirillic seperate versions, analogous to south african ones in past. What do you think?--Pedromoderno 07:15, 27 March 2014 (PDT)

Pedro - you'll want to ping David Zahir about this. Romania has been David's focus. BoArthur 07:57, 27 March 2014 (PDT)
