Actually sort of a post-conSpanish ;)
Just a few minor changes: loss of syllable-final 's' [replaced by circumflex in
roots, but retained spelled silently in inflections--'eius' is /EjU/], loss of
final vowels, simplification of some vowels, a little more phonetic spelling and
whatever grammar is necessary to the situation :p

I almost used.]
