About Falliani (Previously "Fake Italian" with code FIL.)

100% Italian phonology/orthography ripoff (/bastardization) & a lot of typological and structural similarities but without any derived vocab; so basically a shitty relex, but on purpose, because, it's fun, heck to you.

(Any actual lexical similarities to actual Italian/Romance (or Germanic or... any other language) words are purely coincidental.)

Orthography overview:
  • palatalization
    • <ci gi> /tʃ(i) dʒ(i)/ — /i/ dropped before other Vs
    • <sci sgi> /ʃ(i) ʒ(i)/
      • word-finally, <is>
    • <gl gr gn> /ʲl ɣr ɲ/ — <gr> just /ɣ/ initially
  • what does <h> do
    • <ch gh> /k g/ — never palatalized
    • <sch sgh> /sk zg/ — never palatalized
    • <Vh> /V:/
    • <h> initially silent; intervocalic syllable boundary (hiatus)
  • other stuff
    • <s> /s~z/ — voiced between vowels and in contact with voiced Cs
    • <z> /ts~dz/ — voiced between vowels and initially
    • <ss zz> /s ts/ — never voiced
    • <à ì è ò ù> /a: i: e: o: u:/
    • <u i> /w j/ before vowels
    • <ù ì> short syllabic /u i/ before vowels
    • <CC> geminate
