Romanian Language History
The battles between the Romans and Dacians started during the time of Emperor Domitian (88, en) and were continued by the Emperor Train. These battles lead to a transformation of the Roman province of Dacia, for 165 years, until the Emperor Aurelian withdraws Roman garrisons in the south of the Danube.
During this time, in Dacia are brought Roman colonists, merchants, soldiers who, after fulfilling their obligations, are rewarded with privileges (such as land and civil rights). In the year 212 AD, the emperor Caracalla releases “Constitutio Antoniana” that states that the Dacians would become Romanian citizens, due to assuming the Roman lifestyle and the Latin language.
During the years 101 and 271 Ad, the Romanian language has a bilingualism problem because the language is interbred with the Latin language. The Latin language prevailed because it was a great tool of communication, improved tremendously by the work of great writers and men of culture.
Another crossing point for the Romanian language appeared when the Slavic people arrived; the Latin rules of linguistic conversion can’t be apply to the words of Slavic origin. Some linguists consider that, at this point, a second cross between newly formed Romanian and the Slavic language occurs, the Romanian language coming out as a winner.
Being more numerous and better organized north of the Danube, the Romanian population assimilated or rejected the Slavs. The Slavic people have then crossed over to the south of the Danube dispersing the Romanian community from that area.
Romanian language training era is followed by a time of the general Romanian language between the 6th and the 9th century. During this time, we have a separation of Aromanian ethnic group, which gradually descends to the south, under the pressure of the Slavic and Hungarian groups from the Pannonia and Dalmatian area. The place of birth and forming of the Romanian language is situated both north and south of the Danube, in the territory of the former Roman provinces of Dacia, Moesia, Illyria, Pannonia and Dardania.
The presence of Aromanians is signaled in Macedonia, Achaia and Thessaloniki since 1308, some stating that they had come to Hungary under the pressures of the Hungarians and the Huns, and from the Sava River region were displaced by the arrival of the Serbs.
Modern history states that the first grammar book of the Romanian language was published in Vienna in 1780. In the present time the Romanian language achieved popularity outside of the boarder of Romania with the help of numerous artists and award winning movies.
