    What's your favourite Romance Language?

    What's your favourite Romance Language?

    NB: IF YOUR MOTHERTONGUE IS A ROMANCE LANGUAGE DON'T VOTE FOR YOUR OWN MOTHERTONGUE, YOU HAVE TO VOTE FOR ANOTHER ROMANCE LANGUAGE

    Give me your answer based on your preferences (being them: the sound, the culture the language express, it's literature, it's music, the thing it convey...etc...)

    "Ladin" and "judeo-spanish" are two names for the same language. I don't get why that map showed them as different languages.

    Greetings.

    Appart from my mother tongue, which is a Romance one I would say Mozarabic. Too bad it is a dead language now.

    Sardinian is my choice, mainly for the possible paleosardinian substrate it contains. If you have never heard of this heres a link.

    Occitan & Catalan are pretty cool languages, especially the sound of it.
    Gallo-Italic langs. and Rhaeto-Romanic langs. on the other side are very hard to listen to, the Germans call it KauderWelsch because it literally sounds like a mumbling thats very suspicious.

    What I would most like to know about the posted map: Romance languages in Europe, is why the: languages d'oil HAVEN'T been split up into Parisian French, Walloon, Picard, Belgium French, Champenoise and Lorrain and so forth, like how the Langues d'oc have been split into sundry hued Occitan, Gascon, Arpitan and Catalan-Valecencian?

    Seems like the crafty craftsmen behind this sneaky map want to make folks believe the only Romance language in Belgium is standard French! Either this or they are some tinpot outfit who are downright utterly unfit to have anything to do with linguistics.

    Italian and Portuguese, Portuguese sounds like a Neapolitan dialect though, slightly barbaric but very interesting in my opinion, I speak English French and italian but I personally dislike French.

    French. I don't know why but I think Italian sounds annoying (sorry guys!). Spanish is ok but I prefer French. I haven't heard anyone speaking Romanian so I don't really know what it sounds like.

    As far as I know, Latin is not a Romance language. The languages that flow from (vulgar) Latin are Romance. But if Latin is acceptable, I'd choose Latin. Sounds so cool in liturgies at least . But French would still be a close second in this case.

    yes, maybe standard italian, but try the true italian, wich is regional, and our dialects.. Many don't seem songs.. Try tuscan regional way of speaking that is often harsh; the southern italians dialect of campanian-apulian derivation that can sound guttural, some northern italian dialect are are more more musical, but then again no, bergamasc sound not musical,
    standard italian in quotidian Life is only spoken from central latium to the po plain with the exception of triveneto and many areas in piedmont; in all this other areas they speak its own languages-dialects true languages
