Tanrian ( pronounced /tæn'riɘn/) is an ongoing conlang project co-created by Owen Fish and @rozadavia during 2009. Tanrian is spoken on the fictional island of Tanriere which is located in the Mediterranean between Spain's Balearic Islands and Sardinia. As such, Tanrian is a romance language which borrows heavily from all the surrounding romance languages with a curious admixture of Romanian for historical reasons. Tanrian also has several native words which cannot be attested to other romance languages.
