Wasn' aware of that conlang. While I don't really feel like learning it, I possibly will learn something about it, this also could help.voron wrote:SomehowGeekyPolyglot wrote:there really is some Slavonic influence found in this language.
The main influence is vocabulary. You can learn Slovio if you want to advance in Slavic vocabulary without having to pay attention to the grammar.
Even the grammar was affected, too? That is an interesting discovery, because while I already knew that it isn't entirely similar, speaking of grammar, to Spanish and Italian, I didn't expect something like this.The Romanian grammar was affected by the grammar of the Balkan Sprachbund, so it shares features with Serbian and Bulgarian, but it's not common for all Slavic languages.

Yes, sure. Don't you know the joke that Bulgarian is essentially Romanian with words replaced (and there's a grain of truth in every joke)? Read up on the Balkan Sprachbund on Wikipedia.

That's where I am confused because the second one looks more like a conjugated verb, although if I take it that the structure would be similar to French, it would make sense to be infinitive.
SomehowGeekyPolyglot wrote:For those who also know other Slavonic languages: Is that word (prost) being widely understood in many countries? Because I do know that it doesn't only exist in Romanian, but what I don't know is, for example, if it is considered rather slang-y or not.

For example, the Duo audio seems to pronounce eu as /ieu/ and ea as /iea/, which is also what the tips for Basics mentioned. But, the Duo audio also seems to pronounce bea as /biea/, or well, rather, it sounds more like /bja/ with a very quick /j/. So, I'm not sure then if all conjugated forms of a bea should have the <ea> pronounced as /ja/, /iea/ or just /ea/.
