The 1st century BC?!!! Wow! I understand now. Well, it's true that IIRC
Sardinian is the only representant of its own subfamily among Romance
languages, the two others being the Western Romance languages and the Eastern
Romance languages (to which you have to add the Celto-Romance languages in Ill
Bethisad :))) ). Well, since I was planning that Arabo-Romance would be
separated from Mainstream Latin approximately in the 1st century BC too, I was
not that wrong when I compared to Sardinian.
Take your life as a movie: do not let anybody else play the leading role.
