About Regento-Meridese Regentish is a language born out of Neapolitan and Sicilian dialects with some influence from Romanesco, Venetian, and Tuscan spoken in Regente Republic and serving as an official language and/or lingua franca in several other neighboring countries. It's a pluricentric language with several competing standards: South Coast Regentish and Merida Regentish. The level of mutual intelligibility between Regentish dialects is considerably high. Some characteristics that distinguish them from other Romance languages are the loss of distinction between feminine and masculine in the plural, the usage of clitic subject pronouns, the simplification of the verbal paradigm (which is more extreme in Merida Regentish) and the absence of a direct object clitic pronoun in the 3rd person singular in most of cases.

There's a small encyclopedia in Regentish right here, if you'd like to read.

[view] Regentin er Monterrubru (Chervenogorin Regentish)Chervenogorin Regentish is a sub-group of dialects within the Merida Regentish variety spoken in Crvena Gora as one of the two official languages (the other being Chrvenogorin). It doesn't differ much from Standard Merida Regentish, with the main features being the pronunciation of C and G before E and I as /ts/ and /dz ~ dʒ/, the palatalization of T and D before the aforementioned consonants (as in most Merida Regentish dialects) and the lack of a schwa and vowel reduction, which gives u
[view] Rexentin er Fenadeł (Fenadel Regentish)Fenadel Regentish is mutually intelligible with Gayverse Regentish and they both share the same written standard, based somewhat in Meridese Regentish. The main difference between Fenadelian and Guernesic written standards is that Fenadel Regentish uses -e instead of -a, representing its pronunciation as a schwa. It's spoken in the city of Fenadel alongside French and Arusian.
[view] Rezentin Guernesic (Gayverse Regentish)Gayverse Regentish (regentin guernesic) is a dialect of Regento-Meridess mutually intelligible with Fenadel Regentish and Meridese Regentish. It's also mutually intelligible with South Coast Regentish to a lesser extent. What distinguishes it the most is the presence of exclusive/inclusive first person plural pronouns, the presence of the rounded vowels /y/ and /ø/ (y ø < u aw), /ʁ/ as the only rhotic, deletion of almost all final vowels other than /a/ and the lack of vowel reduction wo

[view] Vernacolu er Merida (Merida Regentish)Merida Regentish (RM), also known as vernacolu er Merida, is one of the two standard variants of the Regentish language. It is the most widespread variant, spoken by approximately 60% of the population of the Republic of Regente, and is considered a lingua franca throughout the continent.

[view] Regentinu er Moana\'aina (Moana Regentish)Moana'aina Regentish is a variant of Merida Regentish spoken in Moana'aina colloquially. Some linguists consider it a pidgin that mixes Regentish with languages such as Hawaiian, Indonesian, Tagalog, and several others. The main features are the realization of the rhotics word-initially and /ɾ/ as /l/, the pronunciation of /v/ as /w/ and the insertion of a schwa in some consonant clusters. The word order has a shift to VSO, due to the influence of Hawaiian. It also has a direct object marker: i.
[view] Regentinu ra Costa Sur (Southern Coast Regentish)South Coast Regentish is a dialect of Regento-Meridese spoken in the Metropolitan area of Regente do Sul. It's by far the most conservative dialect, having retained the distinction between long and short consonants, syntactic gemination and some of the verbal morphology it had inherited from Latin. However, it's also undergoing some phonological shifts, such as the voicing of /p t k/ between vowels and after nasals and the extreme reduction of unstressed vowels.
