Florenze is an Italo-Dalmatian constructed language created on October 2016 by Andrew Pereira(Redwars22). It is largely distinct from Latin and Italian in terms of phonology and sound changes. Latin *k, *s, *j, *v and *l changed into *t͡ʃ, *ʂ, *ʝ, *β and *ɫ before all vowels and in all positions while sounds like /θ/ and /ð/ got introduced into the language(mainly from Greek loans and from /d:/) and many consonant clusters like /pl/ were kept. Some words with /d/ or /t/ before /i/ changed into /dz/ or /ts/ while words with /d:/ changed into /ð/. The vowels /e/ and /o/ became /ɛ/ and /ɑ/ in all positions. Both its grammar and morphology are pretty similar to other European languages, especially the Romance ones and it has 2 genders(masculine and feminine), 2 numbers(singular and plural), 3 tenses(present, past and future), 3 persons(1st, 2nd and 3rd), 5 moods(indicative, conditional, subjunctive, jussive and imperative) and 2 aspects(perfect and imperfect) and the copula verbs are "to", "esiri" and "aviri" respectively, and "to" is only used with predicates. The language also has a distinction in the 1st person plural between inclusive(nozaltre) and exclusive(vid). An English-Florenze dictionary can be found here.
