 Romanian phonology - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Romanian consonant set is almost the same as that in Italian, with a few exceptions: The Italian palatal consonants /ɲ/, /ʎ/ and affricate /ʣ/ are missing in standard Romanian, which in turn has the affricate /ʒ/ and the glottal /h/.
Romanian is one of the syllable-timed languages, along with other Romance languages (French, Spanish, etc.), Telegu, Yoruba, and many others.
In the case of Romanian, consonant clusters are often found both in the syllable onset and coda, which require physical time to be pronounced.

To the Romanian language, the Slavic language (similarly to the Germanic idiom of the Franks with the French people) was the so-called super-imposed layer.
Owing to their position, the Romanians south of the Danube were the first to be mentioned in historical sources (the 10th century), under the name of vlahi or blahi (Wallachians); this name shows they were speakers of a Romance language and that the non-Roman peoples around them recognized this fact.

Romanian has broken into several dialects, such as Macedo-Romanian, spoken in southern Macedonia, and Isto-Romanian, the language of a few thousand people in northwestern Croatia.
Notable in phonology was the loss of opposition between Latin long and short vowels, the voicing of intervocalic voiceless consonants, and in some languages the loss of syllable- and word-final s.

She regards Istro-Romanian as a bridge between the Rhaeto-Romansch, Ladin, Friulian and Romanian proper, hence very stable and formed in Istria at the very same spot where it is spoken today.
Once thought to be a language that bridged the gap between the Romanian language and Italian, Dalmatian was only distantly related to the nearby Romanian dialects, such as the nearly extinct Istro-Romanian spoken in nearby Istria, Croatia.
Vlachs (also called Wlachs, Wallachs, Olahs) are the Romanized population in Central and Eastern Europe, including Romanians, Aromanians, Istro-Romanians and Megleno-Romanians, but since the creation of the Romanian state, this term was mostly used for the Vlachs living south of the Danube river.

 Romanian Language Technology
It must be taken into account the fact that Romanian orthography requires morphological syllabication even when the elements which compose the word do not exist as independent units in Romanian: ab/laut (not a/blaut, as phonetic syllabication requires), auto/psie 'autopsy' (not autop/sie), steto/scop 'stethoscope' (not stetos/cop), trans/atlantic (not tran/satlantic).
Romanian syllabication rules presuppose a high degree of linguistic culture of the person who writes.

However, because of the nature of this blog, being about the languages themselves, including their phonology, dialectology, and evolution, and though I know of these in a general way about Romanian, I am not as familiarized with Balkan Romance to cover it as I do with the others.
Romanian, though it can be set apart with Italian because of the way it handles plural formation and other features, is a group on its own, having its own dialectal variants, all encompassing Balkan Romance.
Romanian is indeed great, and I think no less of it; one never knows, I might just learn Romanian within this year, and it will undoubtedly get the mention it deserves up there.

We would be particularly interested in hosting students who are native, or near-native speakers of languages for which we have not previously done TTS work (i.e., most of the world's languages); and who have a background in linguistics, computational linguistics or relevant areas of engineering.
Text-to-speech synthesis is a technology that presents a rich array of challenges, and it requires one to understand a variety of areas including acoustic phonetics, prosody, computational phonology, computational morphology, and corpus-based linguistics --- to name only a few.
By 1995 our tools for creating acoustic inventories and models of intonation and text analysis had advanced to the point that we were able to construct an end-to-end text-to-speech synthesizer for Romanian during the course of one summer.

This is based on my English-side language model only, of course: I was able to guess that it was Romanian only by hearing some obviously Romance morphemes (mostly in other verses) and working through the possibilities by a process of elimination.
Romanian can be completely comprehended without the accents, and in fact many things are published without them.
The anglicization is totally unnecessary and reveals a strong affinity among Internet-savvy modern Romanians for English, which all Romanian school-aged children are taught.

The secret is in the phonology of the Conjunct Zone, assembled in accordance with the Bipartite Syllabic Principle of McDonough (2000).
I suggest that the surface tonal patterns of the neutral tone syllables emerge from an interaction of tonal phonology and phrase-level prosody.
The boundary tone (H or L) at the end of a prosodic constituent determines the tonal target of the last neutral tone syllable and the f0 curves on the intervening neutral tone syllables are transitional from the ending f0 of the preceding stressed syllable to this tonal target.

 ROMANIAN the closest to CLASSICAL LATIN | Antimoon Forum
apart from a 15th-century it is difficult to reconstruct the phonology of the language, but it appears to be a very conservative Hispanic language, which retained many archaic Latin forms and preserved a completely Romance sound system.
Similalry, when the Avars (slavic tribe) invaded "Romania" they left their mark on the phonology of romanian.
Romanian's strong point to CLASSICAL LATIN is it's declension and certain archaic word; and of course it's phonology and grammar.

Romanian is a Romance language related to Spanish and French, but uses letters similar to other languages in Central Europe.
Although Central European languages like Czech, Slovak, Romanian, Polish and Hungarian are written in the Roman alphabet, these languages include characters not commonly found in Western European languages like Spanish and French.
Note on encoding: There are a number of alternative encoding schemes in use for Romanian, but since the Latin-2 and Unicode method conforms to printed Romanian, I will assume that as a standard.

 Romance Branch of the Indo-European Family
In the 14th century, the term Romance meant "vernacular language of France" (as opposed to Latin), from Old French romanz "verse narrative," originally an adverb, "in the vernacular language," from Vulgar Latin *romanice scribere "to write in a Romance language." The term was extended in the 17th century to include other languages derived from Latin.
The phonology, morphology, lexicon, and syntax of all Romance languages are predominantly derived from Vulgar Latin.

This led us to explore the ineffability, or impossibility of certain meanings, from the perspective of a theory which posits that each optimization results in an optimal, hence grammatical output.
In the context of a general OT theory of extraction phenomena (in particular wh- and related movement in English, Bulgarian, and Chinese) we argued that incorporating into syntax the two types of constraint families active in OT phonology - markedness constraints and input-output faithfulness constraints - provided a straightforward answer to the ineffability question.
(Partial orderings of violable constraints have previously been used to explain variation in phonology.) The partial order is formally a set of rankings, where each yields a potentially different output.

The main part of the study focuses on processes involving vocalic segments, which form the thread of the entire phonology of the language.
