  Illyrian languages - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A grouping of Illyrian with the Thracian and Dacian language in a "Thraco-Illyrian" group or branch---an idea popular in the first half of the 20th century---is now generally rejected due to a lack of sustaining evidence, and due to what may be evidence to the contrary.
The identification of Illyrian as a centum language is widely but not unanimously accepted, although it is generally admitted that from what remains of the language, centum examples appear to greatly outnumber satem examples.
The Ancient Greek language (and also the Ancient Macedonian language) would have become an important external influence on Illyrian-speakers who occupied lands adjacent to ancient Greeks and Ancient Macedonians, and this is indicated by the adoption of Greek names by prominent Illyrians (Cleitus, Glaukias) in the south.

 Sons of Italy Lodge 1060 - The Charleston Area Branch of the Order Sons of Italy in America (OSIA)
Present day standard Italian, however, is different from the languages spoken today in Tuscany and Florence differing substantially from them in both vocabulary and pronunciation (Tuscan and Florentine are traditionally referred to also as «dialects», this use, though, actually can be considered as the only instance in which the term dialect is used appropriately).
This language is characterized by a vocalic system called «Neapolitan» (which is also common to the majority of the other romance languages) with seven sounds: í, é, è, à, ò, ó, ú, to these it must be added a schwa () sound characteristic of unstressed vowels.
The Italian language has been used for more than a century as a mean to discriminate against those not speaking it correctly, or with the «correct» accent, it will be ironic to fall in the same error in the case of Neapolitan.
