Abstract:[G. Ivănescu’s conception about the migrations of the Romanians during the Middle Ages] In many ways a highly original thinker, G. Ivănescu (1912–1987) is the only author who published (1980) a complete history of the Romanian language. Many difficult problems addressed and partially resolved by Ivănescu in this work are related to the early (7th–13th century AD) Romanian migratory phenomena, taking place across the Balkans and in the Carpathian regions of Eastern Europe. Largely building on his mentor’s (A. Philippide, 1859–1933) ideas, Ivănescu advances the hypothesis that, despite the fact that the three main dialectal entities of the Romanian language (Aromanians and Megleno-Romanians, Istroromanians and Daco-Romanians) have all originated from the early Latin vernacular, and thus without any Slavic influences, what would account for the differences between these dialects are the significant migratons (South–North, East–West, and West–East) that affected the Romanian population during the above quoted centuries.
According to Ivănescu, these displacements started in the 7th century and saw ethnic Romanians successively migrate from the South of the Danube towards the river’s Northern regions. Ivănescu argues that as a result of these phenomena, the earliest versions of the Romanian language (spoken around the year 1000) developed as follows: 1) The rhotacistic dialect, which later gave birth to the “Morlacian” (and later, the Istro-Romanian), as well as the Northern-Carpathian and Crișana – Maramureș dialectal forms; 2) The Macedo-Romanian – Megleno-Romanian dialect; 3) The Banat – Crișana – Maramureș – Ardeal dialect; and 4) the Moldova – Muntenia dialect. Romanian migrations taking place North of the Danube decreased in intensity the following centuries. Ivănescu’s documents and comprehensively comments these migrations, as well as their consequences.
