Tha database documents the "mistakes" and deviations from Classical Latin norm, which illustrate the Vulgar Latin development. It presented selected case studies resulting from the linguistic data collected from the 2nd volume of the corpus of Inscriptions Latines de l'Algérie.

The phenomena discussed were as follows: phonetic changes typical fo Vulgar Latin development (vocalismus: y > V; voc.-v-voc.> B; y > I; lv > LB; ae > E; consonantismus: qu > CV; aspiratio vitiosa); changes and confusions in declension systems (dat./abl. pl. -(I)BVS pro –is / decl.
