I read an article at britannica.com about the romance languages. It
touched a decent amount on the sound changes from vulgar latin to the
romance languages, but really didnt go into detail (it touched on the
changes that happened to intervocalic p and t). I'm mostly interested in
the changes to the vowels. What were some of the other sound changes? If
it's too much to post here, are there any books I can check out to read
about this, or websites to visit?
(yes, i've been contemplating a possible romance lang of my own ;)).
