General informationEdit

These subjugations, first by the Romans, then by its various descendants, give the language its distinct look.

AlphabetEdit

The orthography for Simance strongly resembles and is based upon the French and English orthographies; in addition, the Portuguese orthography lent influence to the diaspora orthography. Many diphthongs and their orthographical representations are directly borrowed from French, further complicating spelling conventions. As with French and English, there is a noticeable cognitive gap between the written word and its pronunciation.

PhonotacticsEdit

Nearly the same as all of the other Romance languages. Very few exceptions.

Example textEdit

Tens hiques verdàes cóm êpiques, que euns hoins sont creàts pars, que sont dotàts por seu Creator con cièts dreits inalienables, entre hiques sont Ví, Livertà, et la Conseitation da Beatud.

En grace segrar hics dreits, Empiers sont îtuàts sur l'Hom, muand suas poences da consention du empràt, que quots alque Heume du Empier fie dêtrutive d'hiques cousses, est le dreit du Péu a muar ou aboear le, et îtuar Empier neu, poniend seus fundaments sur hics principies et ordiand suas poences en la heume, pra mais segrament perpetrar sua segridà et Beatud.


We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.

That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.
