Post subject:  British Romance Language Collab

Let's make a collab language! How it works is that all aspects of the language will be voted on, and there might be a little history-building involved. For this collab, we'll be making a Romance language descended from British Latin. Any proposals made for any questions will be added as an extra option. Votes will be counted weekly.

1) Will we be following the ?
a) East
b) West
c) No

2) How will this language fare after the Anglo-Saxons attempt to invade?
a) It will exist in isolated pockets, the Anglo-Saxons win.
b) The Anglo-Saxons win, both languages will coexist, each being separate kingdoms.
c) The Romano-British people win, both languages will coexist, each being separate kingdoms.
d) The Anglo-Saxon language will exist in isolated pockets, the Romano-British people win.
e) The Anglo-Saxon language will go extinct, the Romano-British people win.

3) From what Latin term will this language's name be derived?
a) britannicus
b) britanniēnsis
c) britanniānus

4) What will happen to the Brythonic Celtic languages?
a) They will exist in isolated pockets.
b) They will coexist with this language.
c) They will go extinct, their only remnants being loanwords in this language.

You have until 01:00 UTC on Monday, November 6, to vote.

Post subject:  Re: British Romance Language Collab

If the goal is realism, it should, ideally, be at least 85% identical to .

So:
1. I vote for a. I don't see how the other options even make sense.
2. only the bottom 3 make sense. Romano-British need to retain their cultural capitals in order for the language to survive. I vote c, because that's the most interesting.
3. I vote for the Vulgar Latin form Brittaniēnsis.
4. I vote for a. Also, the Anglo-Saxon language is so influenced by Celtic that it is essential a mixed language in its early medieval form (probably gets more Germanic than Celtic as time goes on due to foreign influences). Regular Brythonic goes completely extinct in the mixed Saxon-Cetlic area.

The big question is what is the POD? This is what really determines the answers 2-4.

Post subject:  Re: British Romance Language Collab

I think they could behave more like Eastern Romance rather than Western because of the influence of the Germanic languages, which don't tend to have such heavy amount of lenition and elision, and their isolation from the continental Europe.

Post subject:  Re: British Romance Language Collab

Results:

1) Will we be following the ?
This language will be a Western Romance language. The third option (No) was meant to be in case we wanted to make a new branch of Romance that probably would have been a hypothetical North Romance. Kind of like how Sardinian doesn't fall into the category of Eastern or Western Romance.

2) How will this language fare after the Anglo-Saxons attempt to invade?
The Romano-British people beat the Anglo-Saxons. Thus, both languages coexist and have separate kingdoms.

3) From what Latin term will this language's name be derived?
The name of this language will be derived from Vulgar Latin *britanniēnsis. This name would most likely be adopted into English as Britainese

4) What will happen to the Brythonic Celtic languages?
The Brythonic Celtic will exist in isolated pockets in our language's kingdom.

My idea is that:
i :>:> ɪi :> ɛi
u :>:>
e :>:>
o :>:>
ɛ :> ɛː :>
ɔ :> ɔː :>

I think you could diphthongise /eː oː/ further, but I leave it to you.
