About Banatian
BANATIAN (is a romlang)

- in the declensions, the schwa (even a simple -ə) will be dropped in informal speech from all compatible paradigms except for syllabic support;
- evolution of Latin declensions: 1 + 2 → 1 (masculines); 3 → 2 (feminines); 4 + 5 → 3 (either);
- third declension applies on syncopated masculines and feminines and loans;
- remarkably, arhizotonic emphatic forms of the nouns emerged, forming some sort of prepositional case marked along with the other declensions;
- remarkable disregard of endings in classifying words (-ere endings are not typical of any specific conjugation etc.);
- conjugations 1, 2, 3 are increasingly palatophile (played a role in assimilation);
- nominative, accusative and dative-genitive;
- adjectival first declension applies to regulars;
- adjectival second declension (inherited from Romanian) applies to irregulars and loans;
- evolution of Latin conjugations: 1 → 1; 2 + 3 → 2; 4 → 3; ∅ → 4 (from Romanian);
- the conditional is formed on a merging of future and imperfect endings;
- the third conjugation shows use of the archaic Latin future endings and retains the /-wi-/ endings for the past tense in the form of /-wej-/;
- dative in pronouns disappeared; indirect objets are preposed to the verb and direct objects postposed to it, both marked as accusative; Banatian has generalized the indirect transitivity (a.k.a. "dative") for any verb of transfer or movement;
- verbal compound word order is: (negator) - verbal pronoun - auxiliary - (indirect object) - participle - (direct object);
- very productive compound verbal forms;
- deriving nouns from pronominal verbs works as follows: ”s(ə,') layzâre” → ”slayzâ”;
- n|dl → ll (dinlə → dillə);
- ə+V# → 'V# (+ emphatic form if it's a noun: ə autə → 'aut).

Note: /ɰ/ comes from an intermediary /ʂ,ʐ/ stage.
