Lingwei Laiþhionoei [λiɲɟɥɛi lˠainˠɛi] is a language which descends from the Classical Latin of 200 B.C.


In this alternate history setting, the Germanians and Gauls attacked and defeated the Roman Republic early-on, but the Romans continued to speak Latin, which went through a generalisation of stress to the penultimate syllable, then the Goidelic secondary articulation formation, then Grimm's law and the a/o->a;á/ó->ó merger, then the Goidelic lenition and eclipsis, then some more sound changes, as well as the Germanic stress accent on the first syllable, all the while gaining many Celtic and Germanic loanwords.
