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. Christophe. Take your life as a movie: do not let anybody else play the leading role.
