As said above, the language is a Romance language, which requires some explanation. The language is to be featured in a SciFi story that sort of plays of the old convention of SciFi of having distant aliens speak English. In this story, Earth astronauts travel to [ibrU] only to find very human-like inhabitants speaking a very familiar language. The crew’s linguist confirms that the language is indeed an unknown Romance language, and together the linguist and the crew’s rhetorician reconstruct the history of [librU], the people of [ibrU].
A few thousand years ago, during the reign of Augustus, a benevolent tribe of aliens visited Earth and studied humanity. They found humankind to be hopelessly hierarchal and doomed to eventual annihilation via war. These aliens take a small Roman town’s children with the notion of giving wildly creative humanity another chance at building a society without the hierarchal behavior so prevalent on Earth. The children were taken to Mars for psychological conditioning and training in earth-shaping: using personal and social energy to cause the earth to form topographical features that may be dwelt in. This is explains the pyramids on Mars, that have mathematical dimension and proportion suggesting intelligent design but yet appear as natural topography to NASA satellites. Mars was chosen for a couple of reasons: 1. it was an easy step from Earth to acclimate the children to the idea of being away from their home, and 2. Mars with its red color and sky and its two moons is in some ways oddly similar to [ubrU].
After the training and conditioning on Mars, the children were taken 20.5 light years from Earth to [ibrU], where their descendents remain. The linguist easily recognized their language as Latinate as it follows several rules (see Appendix for current rules) for the formation of [atinU] words from Latin words (as described below), which is due to the fact that the Roman children of course spoke Latin. But the language also exhibits some traces the language spoken by the benevolent aliens.
