Romania: Language-Free Enclave

Andy H of Csikszereda Musings posts a language distribution map of Romania, which shows that he lives in an enclave where Romanian isn't the dominant language.


  • Thanks for linking me Veronica, but I feel I need to point out that the area I live in is not “Romanian language free” – it’s just that Romanian is not the majority language here. (I know you know this, I just don’t want to upset anyone :-))

  • I apologize for the wording – and thank you for your comment, Andy!

    daddy – tati, father – tata
