Abstract

In this article I will approach and try to clarify an unusual spelling (sumparao) which occurs in a text from the beginning of the 18th century, attributed to Antim Ivireanul. It is the question of a Romanian translation, made after an intermediate Greek version, of a distant French original. At the same time, I will point out some questionable (or more than questionable) spellings, from a fragmentary modern edition of the respective text, published by Alexandru Duțu in 1968 (ciocotințește for ciocotnițește; ciocotinția for ciocotniția; împărteșuțează for împărteșugează; roscoasă for roscoașă; scutelește for șutelește). I will also point out some unusual, rare lexical units, some of them representing antedatings compared to the oldest attestations registered in the reference works in the field (deletnicie; însoțime; răsfățăciune; soțiime). In so doing, I will propose certain semantic and/or etymological clarifications.
