    STUDIA THEOLOGIA ORTHODOXA - Issue no. 2 / 2011  

Authors:  ANA BACIU.
  Abstract:  Some Arguments Concerning the Transylvanian Romanians Etymologists. Specialists who have dealt with spelling (orthographic) standardization of a certain language turned to etymology to be able to reconstruct the road from the shape of a particular word to the usual form of it. An argument in this sense is the study of the evolution of English, Italian and French standard language. Applying the etymologist principle, the language specialists who have discussed the fundamentals of these language issues followed, wherever possible, the reconstruction of ancestral forms, primary form of the basic Element of a word, or linguistic element, shape and meaning changes, and identification of related elements in other languages, or transition of words or linguistic elements from one language to another. The same was true for Romanian language, Transylvanian etymologists having the great merit to present Romanian language being of Latin extraction and demonstrate that Romanian is a Romance language.
