About Sivonian Sivonian is an extremely conservative Western Romance language spoken by the people of Sivonia. Most closely related to Italian, Sivonian nevertheless shares many features with both Spanish and Ecclesiastical Latin, which provided a great deal of borrowings during the Sivonian Reawakening (a movement in the late 1600s to return to the language's Latin roots).
Sample of Sivonian[view] Diuli diola, / il cato e la viola, / il bove saltau supre ilam lunam. / Il caneto ridiú / videre talem lusom, / e la scutra fugiú con il coclaro.

Hey Diddle Diddle, / The cat and the fiddle, / The cow jumped over the moon. / The little dog laughed / To see such sport, / And the dish ran away with the spoon.
