About Romániço

Romániço is a planned language combining a simple grammar with a lexicon based on etymologically delocalized Romance.

It was created in 1991 with the goal of harnessing the familiar vocabulary of Common Romance (and, where possible, Anglo-Romance), the familiar morphology of the international scientific vocabulary, a conservative but regular orthography, a familiar but regular set of affixes for on-the-fly word derivation, and a consistent methodology of “evolution” from Latin to give the language a cohesiveness and predictability of character.

The ambitions of Romániço are modest: it does not seek to prevent international conflict or supplant existing or future lingua francas. It does, however, grant access to the lexicon of Romance to the uninitiate in a way that’s at once simple and lexically archetypical.

On this site, aspiring Románicists will find everything they need to start using Romániço today.
