It's a Romlang. Moreover, it's a Romconlang. To be more precise, it's my con
lang project "Ajamiya" that I took back from a dusty shelf and resumed to co
in it on.
This is a heavily Arabicized Ibero-Romance lang from an alternative timelin
- a kind of attempt to imagine how Spanish (together with Portuguese, Galic
ian etc.) could look if there were no Reconquista, and the Iberian Peninsula
were still in the Islamic cultural space. The lang remains basicly Romance,
but the degree of Arabic influence onto its structure, esp. vocabulary can b
e compared with the same Arabic influense onto Farsi, French influence onto
English, Chinese onto Japanese, and heavier than Hebrew onto Yiddish.
The word _eskribiw_ is written in Ajami this way (vowel signs omitted):
P.S. No, I'm not a Muslim ;)
