Well, i'm nost sure about that yet. I'd like to have it where Rumsien
didnt die off completely, but have it influence Montreiano just a bit. I
wonder, do any of the Mayan or Aztecan languages influence regional
varieties of Spanish in Mexico and Central America?
Perhaps, the ending -taruc is so ingrained intot he minds of the people as
an ending for city names that it becomes productive? (maybe not).
