Neolatin (Romance Neolatino)

Neolatin is an international auxiliary language designed to be used by speakers of different Romance languages to communicate with one another. Neolatin removes the idiosyncrasies in Romance languages that make it difficult for speakers to understand each other and focuses on the numerous words and forms that the Romance languages have in common. It is the parallel project to the Interslavic project (for Slavic languages), except Neolatin is for Romance languages.

Neolatin can be learned and used as a Romance Esperanto or Latin Esperanto, and can be treated as a set of recommendations for altering any Romance language to facilitate communication with other Romance speakers. It also helps Romance speakers get a better understanding of texts written in any other Romance language.

It is a standard of Pan-Romance communication actively developed by the collective, international and interdisciplinary project Vía Neolatina. While there have been similar attempts at creating a Pan-Romance standard in the past, the founder and lead developer of the project, Dr. Jordi Cassany-Bates, has been working on this codification since 2006 with the help of other linguists and collaborators.
