About Atlantic Atlantic, also known as Rumon (lit. Roman) is an a posteriori romlang set in an uchronic Earth in the Roman Atlantic Provinces, a country in Northwestern Africa ultimately descended by the three Roman provinces of Mauretania Tingitana, Mauretania Caesariensis, and Numidia. The Atlas Mountains, the main geographical feature of the area, give the area and the people their name.

Atlantic is not meant to be a historically realistic romlang in the sense that it does not pretend to be any reconstruction of what an African Romance language spoken in those areas would sound. Instead, the idea behind it was to have a romlang with some specific, cherry-picked sound changes taken from Romance natlangs (including a slightly modified version of the Sicilian vowel system and a phonemic version of the Tuscan gorgia) coupled with the lack of a merger between Latin long and short /a/.

In morphology and syntax, Atlantic is a lot more conservative than any Romance natlang, even if it developed its own innovative features in some areas. Vocabulary-wise, Atlantic maintains many words from Latin that were replaced by borrowings in Romance natlangs, but also has a fair share of Arabic borrowings (greater than in any Ibero-Romance language), loanwords from other native and co-official languages of the Atlantic Provinces such as the Berber ones or Wolof, and a notable amount of learned Greek borrowings, relic of the koinéization of the language during Illuminist times which resorted to Ancient Greek as its main source of vocabulary.
