In Italy, Spain, and Portugal, "yes" and "no" are "si" and "no". In France the "oui" and "non" relate. In Romania it's "da" and "nu"? "Da"? The standard glib response to this (proximity of many Slavs) is unacceptable.

How would they inadvertently wander into a pair of opposites to change only one?
I think a useful question is, when and under what circumstances did Romanians swap their "si" for "da", without also adopting "nyet"?

Hi,
The afirmative "Da" comes, in both russian and romanian from the Keltic "Ta".It is still in use in some parts of Wales.

Thank you guina, that'll work. Reminds be that 'tara' is Irsh for 'land', too.

Another one for you. People in the village of Danes have no idea of the origin of that name. And they are generaly too dark-complected for Danes. Any idea?

What is your scientific explanation for this comparison Rodica = Roderika?
Can you state the root of the names Roderika and Rodica and explain the transformation in now romanian Rodica?
Any proof based analisys of linguistic terms are analised like this and it is prooved that some words sounding slavic are in fact romanians (or proto-romanians) and viceversa, to give only a single example.

So, I'd like to see the explanation between Roderika = Rodica and who influenced who's language. Proofs and sources please.

The only comparative analisys between (proto)romanian and other languages is made by academician Marius Sala and published in the book named : "From latin to romanian".

Is this your source?

It was apreciable to cite the source before, in the posting refering at the subject.

It is still not clear for the foreign reader of the subject the common origin of those 2 names. Non-romanian readers can't read "Dictionar etimologic".

Take care!

The name Rodica is the female version of the name Radu. Radu is slavic for "joy". Radu is a very popular name in Eastern Europe where it appears in many forms such as Radek, Radko, Radovan, Radomir, Rodion, etc.
In its female version, Rodica also appears as Rada, Radanka, Radovanka, Radmila.

... Radu... :D

It is possible that in this wallachian legion were also dacians. It could explain some names in the area . One very known is Brinzan ( modeller contest winner in UK and Ireland ;) ). The name derivated from dacian word Brinza (cheese) :P :D
