A pretty brunette & Sardinian
You are Italian but your language is Sardinian. My poem for the love of a pretty brunette. Your hair needed a translation, that why i have translated, in Sardinian this pretty little poem.
Sardinian, the regional language of Sardinia, is a Romance language spoken by 1.4 million people. Of all the Romance languages, the Sardinian is the one that remained closest to vulgar Latin but underwent Catalan and Spanish influences. Of the 4 dialectal areas one considers the Logoudorian as the most specific, it is at the base of the "illustrious sardo" used by popular poetry. In Sardinian language, one find many word of spanih origin, it is the roman language closest to latin.
Sardinia is an island in the south of Corsica with a special status in relation to Italy to guarantee its cultural heritage. The first traces of colonization date back to the Neolithic period, probably from North Africa. Will come one after another: the Phenicians with slaves from Lybia, Romans, Vandals, Byzantines, Corsicans, Spaniards. A mix of cultures that will necessarily mark the island and its language.
