  • In this article, we write the linguistic monograph of the generic term around which the Romanian forest terminology is built. Starting from the lexicographic definition and from the etymology, we draw a comparison with similar words in other neo-Latin languages, resulting in some interesting historical conclusions. We mention important geographical and hydrographic terms containing the idea of forest in their age-old names, which is very suggestive from historical, linguistic and spiritual point of view. We illustrate the “lexical efficiency” of the term, as well as its “echoes” in toponymy, hydronymy and anthroponymy.
  • Dans cet article nous traçons une esquisse de la monographie linguistique du terme générique autour duquel se construit la terminologie roumaine de la forêt. En commençant par la définition lexicographique et par l’étymologie, nous les comparons avec l’étymologie des termes équivalents des autres langues néo-latines, tirant ainsi des conclusions très intéressantes d’ordre historique. Nous évoquons des termes géographiques et hydrographiques importants, qui contiennent dans leurs racines anciennes l’idée de forêt, fait révélateur du point de vue historique, linguistique et spirituel. Nous illustrons «l’efficience lexicale» du terme, ainsi que ses échos dans la toponymie, hydronymie et anthroponymie.
