Jost Gippert: Our Featured Linguist!

"Buenos dias", "buenas noches" -- this was the first words in a foreign language I heard in my life, as a three-year old boy growing up in developing post-war Western Germany, where the first gastarbeiters had arrived from Spain. Fascinated by the strange sounds, I tried to get to know some more languages, the only opportunity being TV courses of English and French -- there was no foreign language education for pre-teen school children in Germany yet in those days.

Title: La Romanité Orientale
Written By: Nicolae Saramandu
URL: http://www.narr.de/isbn.php?isbn=978-3-8233-6524-2

La romanité orientale présentée dans cet ouvrage concerne la population
romanisée de l'Empire romain d'Orient qui est a l'origine du peuple
roumain. De riches et précieuses informations sur la romanité orientale au
IV\'-XV siècles (sources latines et byzantines) se trouvent dans Fontes
Historiae Daco-Romanae (vol. II-IV, 1970-1982). Complétées et enrichies par
un matériel documentaire provenant d'autres sources, les données
historiques attestent la présence continue de la romanité dans les pays
conquis par les Romains; elles mettent aussi en évidence les contacts
permanents entre la population romanisée du nord du Danube et celle du sud
du Danube.

La romanité orientale qui a pris naissance sur le territoire de l'Empire
romain d'Orient était unitaire du point de vue linguistique er se
présentait comme un continuum romanicum au nord et au sud du Danube.
L'unité de la langue roumaine ne s'oppose pas a l'existence d'un vaste
espace romanise: elle s'explique par l'unité du latin et le caractère
unitaire de la langue autochtone. Aux études comprises dans la première
section du volume, oú la perspective historique est dominante, s'ajoutent
les contributions de la seconde section, oú l'auteur présente la situation
actuelle des dialectes roumains dans un cadre plus large, roman et balkanique.
