Very interesting. Do you have some examples? Since I've been doing a
Romance lang myself now, I get even more interested in comparing it
(and the whole continuum of Romance conlangs I've already looked into)
to other people's work. :-)
Is the grammar fully taken from or inspired by Turkic or did you
evolve Latin into being agglutinative in some way that feels like
Turkic? (There's this polysynthetic Romance natlang which they call
'French', so why not evolve Latin into something agglutinative?)

Also interesting -- I'd also be interested in more information about
its design goals, etc.
