    STUDIA PHILOLOGIA - Issue no. 1-2 / 2001  

  Abstract:  On the Romance Character of Romanian. This article provides, for the undergraduate and graduate foreign students as well as for the foreign lecturers that teach in Romania, a systematisation of the problems concerning the formation of the Romanian language with a view to establishing the specific character of Romanian in relation to other Romance languages, taking into consideration the fact that for many foreigners, even with a philological education, Romanian is not considered a Romance language. Romanian is a Romance language, continuing the Vulgar Latin spoken in Dacia and in the north-eastern part of the Balkan Peninsula during the first centuries of our era. It does have a specific personality among the other Romance languages because it was geographically isolated in the south-eastern part of Europe, being surrounded by Slavic languages and the Hungarian language.
