Vallés Translation

Final ment, una tràdidzon con spirid conduirá tuas aiceons ala cima,
resoviand en mancantza.
Muda lò como fâis, porquè todas causas non deven venir al centr.
Lò como fâis est tant emportant què tua vida!

Vallés Grammar Notes

Word order is pretty typically Romance.

Verbs are listed according to infinitive in the vocabulary. There are four conjugations, the infinitives ending in -ar, -er, -ir, and -r. The regular endings that occur here are:

future, 3rd person singular; added to infinitive
-en present indicative, 3rd person plural; replaces infinitive ending
-a imperative, 2nd person singular; replaces infinitive ending
-iand gerund, replaces infinitive ending

There are also some irregular verb forms. These are listed in the vocabulary.

Nouns are listed in the singular form. Plurals are formed by adding -s (in this text); there may be minor stem changes.

Adjectives, quantifiers, and determiners are listed in the feminine singular form. Unless this ends in -a, the masculine singular is the same as the feminine dingular. Plurals are formed as if the singular forms were nouns.

Adverbs are formed from adjectives by placing ment after the feminine singular form.

There's an abstract form of the definite article, , which is used with adjectives and occasionally other things. Otherwise, definite articles appear here only when contracted with à.
