La découverte d’un mot et de son étymologie
Le lat. clivus en roumain et dans les patois ukrainiens carpatiques
Discovered in the Vrancea County as a result of toponymic surveys, the Ro. chiu has the semasiological field of its etymon, the Lat. clivus. The intermediary phase of its phonetic evolution (cl’iuœu) is indirectly attested by the Ukr. klyva. The same Latin lexical base was preserved in Alb. qye as well. The Romanian word must be added to both the Romanian-Albanian correspondences registered up to the present day and to those among Romanian, Rhaeto-Romance and the Northern Italian dialects.
