Lexical Items which Ennobles Wallachian Ethos


  • Larisa Ileana CASANGIU

    (Universitatea Ovidius din Constanța, România)


There is, in the Wallachian dialect, a few words which give its specificity and ennobles it. They are not found in the rest of dialects and may be considered idiomatic, because they are untranslatable (in the sense of total equivalence). Some are lexemes with the singular form, others are new meanings of some existing phrases in Romanian literary. Popularization of these lexical items through this article aims at knowledge and their integration into generalized use of the Romanian language, pointing their idiomatic character. The Wallachian dialect should not be regarded as having privileged status among other dialects, but as a linguistic resource that allows nuanced and creative expression at the national.
