XXIX Maii MMXIII
The Ancient Romans sure left us a lot of good stuff.
Derived from Latin, the Romance languages, for example. The five most widely spoken are:
Italian, Spanish, French, Portuguese and Romanian. (The French don’t have a monopoly on ”romance.”)
But let’s not forget other Latin derived languages:
Aragonese, Aromanian, Arptan, Asturian, Catalan (Recently I met a man from Barcelona who insisted on speaking his native language of Catalan.), Corsican, Emiliano-Romagnolo, Friulan, Galician, Ladro, Leonese, Lombard, Mirandese, Neapolitan, Occitan, Piedmontese, Romanish, Sardinian, Sicilian, Venetian and Walloon. (Of course, you know where they speak Walloon to this very day?)
