About Ouiltan  Ouiltan (natively **ouiltan** /ɥiltɑ̃/) is a language that evolved from Middle French spoken around the 14th to 15th centuries. Those French people during their navigations ended up in a land that would eventually become. In the 17th century, the Kingdom of Oil (the only country where Ouiltan is official) had become independent. Ouiltan by then would already be significantly different from Parisian French. The language had several processes of analogy, reanalysis and morphological restructuring, and it's now moving towards becoming an agglutinative language.

The main phonological processes that affected Ouiltan differ from those that originated Parisian French out of Middle French. There's monophthonguization of /aj/, some consonants disappear leaving behind a long vowel, stops and /v/ also disappear between vowels sometimes. There's also a strong tendency for schwa deletion, leading to new consonant clusters, strange to other romance languages. As for its lexicon, it's currently being influenced from English,  Riograndese,  Regento-Meridese ,  Arlianian.

Features
  1. V2 word order with inversion in questions and subject and object agreement
  2. Agglutination and tendency to use prefixes for grammatical purposes
  3. Appearing of long vowels after adjacent consonants disappeared
  4. Influence from English, German and neighbouring languages
  5. Loss of gender agreement, except for nouns refering to people. For objects and non living beings, the masculine pronouns are used by default
  6. Articles are bound to the noun, as a prefix
  7. The morpheme order in verbs is: SUBJECT + (ne) + (COI) + COD + (y) + (en) + VERB + (pa)
