About Francien

 Francien was always been considered a corrupted form of Standard French, since only the poorest people in Paris used to speak it in the past. Now, most of the population in Île-de-France can speak and understand it and a lot of literature has been written in this language. It has also some degree of mutually intelligibility with French, specially in its written form. It is also spoken in the Kingdom of La Fiori and one of the official languages there.

Features
  • Negation is formed by putting NE before the verb and NON after it or only by putting PAS after the verb, but this is not widely used because people often thing it is way too "French";
  • The word order is largely SVO;
  • Indirect objects generally precede direct objects;
  • Determiners are placed before the noun;
  • There's no gender and number agreement;
  • Verbs have up to 17 tenses, but only 7 of them are synthetic;
  • Verbs don't change by person or number;
  • Allophonic nasalization of vowels that precede the nasal consonants /m/ and /n/;
  • Retention of the sound /h/ which became mute in Romance languages;
  • It's a topic- and subject-prominent language;
