    I want to take a curiosity out of all the civilizations currently realized, the inhabitants or the troops in the movements or in the various actions they perform speak turning in their mother tongue. So I wanted to know even the Romans will talk? and their mother tongue will obviously be Latin, no Italian right?

    It was stated somewhere that there would not be full dialog but similar "noises"/ short soundbites to what other civilizations do(I don't have a link, might've been in discord), latin is also a dead language so how one pronounces words in it is subject to debate afaik.

    There is a reason that in school for courses latin the focus is (almost) completely on the writing aspect, and not pronounciation.

    They will speak Latin.

    ABullishBear, I am so pleased to tell you that scholars know exactly how Latin sounded and have even reconstructed words and sounds from languages that have been dead for thousands of years. Linguistics is absolutely fascinating.

    This is about as short a video I can find to begin the explanation.

    obviously not knowing English well I probably expressed myself badly, I didn't want to open a discussion so turned on, it was just to get rid of my curiosity, of course it's obvious given that I'm Italian and I know the origins of my language. I had formulated the question just to know, if was certainly the Latin the chosen language

    Sure, guess I was misinformed then ^^ the source was my brother who took latin.

    All the better for the Romans then I guess!
    Interesting video.

    I have say I am fecking amazed at the level of detail , art and the works that the team is able to do. It's incredible ..... pity I just got informed that possibly I can go home for 2 days over xmas so a small wait for me for the Romans is nothing. Patience is a virtue and I got a lotta virtue in my vault LoL. 1 or 2 tech her are very nice and let me play sometimes , the others are bandwidth paranoids even though I told them it's prolly less than watching netflix which no one seems to be bothered about.
    But really its incredible what you guys are achieving .... so motivational for me at least thanks
