Wow! You've just reinvented Old French!!! ;)))
Seriously, it looks really like a langue d'oïl (this small sub-group of Romance
languages from which French, Anglo-Norman and Picard come for instance). Things
like "livre" for "free" (which has the b>v fricativisation common to all
langues d'oïl. I suppose the French "libre" is a loanword, probably from a
langue d'oc, or else I cannot explain the anormal presence of the [b] in this
position - or maybe analogy or learned borrowing from Latin? -) or the
omnipresence of diphtongues make it pretty clear what kind of Romance lang it
is :)) . I'd be interested to know the internal history of this language, and
if my guess is right :) .

Hehe, if you have a good sequence of sound changes to explain it, I don't see
the problem :)) . Some dialects of langue d'oïl had (and have, for the few that
are still left besides French) very strange phonologies compared to mainstream
Romance languages :)) .

What's the difference with a voiced palatal fricative /J/ and a voiceless
palatal fricative with voicing?
and /&// "either mid front rounded vowel, /2/ or /9/"
Where did you get this convention? Or did you invent it? In any case, I find it
Take your life as a movie: do not let anybody else play the leading role.
