Romanʹic or Romance Languages

.

Those modern languages which are the immediate offspring of Latin, as the Italian, Spanish, Portuguese, and French. Early French is emphatically so called; hence Bouillett says, “Le roman était universellement parlé en Gaule au dixième siècle.”

“Frankis speech is called Romance,

So say clerks and men of France.”


Robert Le Brunn.
