About Rumyrian An Eastern Romance language used in parts of central and eastern Slovakia, western Ukraine, south-eastern Poland and northern Hungary in the region of the Carpathian. Closely related to Daco-Romanian. Although descended primarily from the dialects of XII-century Transylvania it has evolved over time to moreso resemble the Aromanian and Istro-Romanian languages and the Banat dialect of Daco-Romanian. It features many borrowings from Ukrainian, Slovak and Polish. It lacks many of Daco-Romanian's Serbo-Croatian, Bulgarian, Greek and Ottoman Turkish borrowings. Its' borrowings from Hungarian tend to be different as the language parted ways with Daco-Romanian before both of them came under Hungarian influence.
It has two main dialect groups:
- Northern, spoken in parts of Poland and Ukraine.
- Southern, spoken in parts of Slovakia and Hungary.
The Southern group features more dialectal variability, especially with regards to phonology despite being spoken on a smaller area.
The language uses both the Latin and Cyryllic script, with the latter being nowadays used to write the Ukrainian dialects and the standardised variety in Ukraine.
The standardised variety is a mix of the most common words and pronunciations throughout the dialects that doesn't always fully reflect the underlying phonemes. It is the language used in media and the limited amount of education Rumyr children receive in their language. Although children learning the language at school are more likely to use it as their main language they're also more likely to mix their dialect with the standard, while older speakers typically speak purely in dialect.

Characteristic pan-dialectal features:
- Retention of the final -u as a full syllable in masculine and neuter nominatives.
- /VnV/ -> /VrV/. This results in words with lots of trills.
- Unstressed /ɛ, ʲi, o̞, ɪ/ turn to [ɪ, ʲɪ, u, ə] respectively.
- /t͡ʃ/ -> /ʃ/, /d͡ʒ/ -> /ʒ/. /tʲ/ and /dʲ/ have changed into /t͡ʃ/ and /d͡ʒ/ in some dialects.
