In the world of Universal Languages, Romance words are taken from Latin according to these rules:

  • ch becomes k or c
  • c becomes k before a,e,æ, otherwise s
  • French g becomes zj
  • ph is f
  • th is t
  • x is ks
  • qu is k or kw
  • French é is ei
  • ou to u
  • æ to e

For quick and messy guess work from German

  • ö to e
  • ü to u
  • ei to e (? i ?)
  • au to u
  • ch to k
  • z/ss to t
  • sch to sk
  • medial b to v
  • medial f to p
