A Latin etymology for Romanian da = yes

Publication: Ianua. Revista Philologica Romanica, 8, p. 93
Publisher:Romania Minor
Abstract:In this article the author argues that Latin ita is a possible source for Romanian da = yes, ordinarily assumed to be a Slavic borrowing. This emerges as phonologically possible, but unprovable. This controversial etymology is given even more credence by the demonstration that the Latin conjunction ita quod is a probable source for the Romanian conditional particle dacă.
Key words:Romanian, Latin, da, dacă, ita quod, yes, sic
