You can compare the two languages to each other and observe all the similarities. Of course, it helps if you also speak Italian because then it will become apparent why Sardinian is considered the most conservative Romance language (and thus the closest to Latin).
I read the article and understand it, I just don't agree with it. I gave the reasons why I don't agree and you responded 'well, that's your opinion' so as far as I'm concerned discussion over.

Thanks for the link to the dictionary, and no I don't speak Italian I only understand a little from being around folks who are fluent in the language here in NYC.

I'll check it out when I have a little more time I'm in the process of putting my boat in the water for the season and need to do a few upgrades on the electrical system and the electronics so I'll be busy with that for awhile. My 'black hole' in the water.

BTW I asked my goombah at [email protected] if he knew of a good Sardinian red ...I buy this Tuscan Sangiovese to drink with my friends there, he's getting a few bottles that I'll put on the table this weekend and see if I hear a "get the fuck outta here" over supper.

Ciao for now buddy
