The word fiu used as an example is a Romanian word that came from the Latin word filius. Dadas 09:55, 15 September 2008 (CEST)
- fiú is a Hungarian word. Its olden form is fi. (used for example in kurafi). It is possible, that Rumanian also uses it. Latin, by the way has features and also words from Hungarian, especially lots of endings, just check the Oo Latin spell checking dictionary, due to Etruscian mediation. Etruscian was a Hungarian type people using a Hungarian type language according to Italian linguists. --Hu1 22:19, 22 September 2008 (CEST)
- You try to manipulate me. It is not sure who were the Etruscians (Etruscans) and you did not show me anything about the origins of the word fiu. On Romanian dictionary DEX says that fiu came from Latin filius: DEX fiu - filius
- Also about the origin of Etruscians (Etruscans): Etruscan civilization
- And of course Hungarians invented everything on Earth. Dadas 08:08, 23 September 2008 (CEST)
- Usually the longer word comes from the shorter one. That seems to be logical for me. What do you think?
- Hungarian works with word trees, as written in the article, words are built on each other, first the shorter ones. fû-füves-füvészkert, etc...
- fi, fiú fiús, fiúiskola, fiúiskolaigazgató, etc...
- I do not doubt at all, that the Romanian word for fiú comes from filius, do I?
- Well, wikipedia is for me for sure not the source for anything, that has to do with people, their origin, languages, politics, history and the like. It is sometimes useful for computer words, but usually not deep enough.
- You see it correctly, Hungarians invented a lot of things. Maybe I'll write about that an article later. --Hu1 18:01, 23 September 2008 (CEST)
- Eugen Cizek in '"History of Rome" on page 26-27, wrote about the ancient sources: Herodot said that Etruscians (Etruscans) migrate from Lydia Anatolia to Italy. Dionis from Halicarnas said that Etruscians (Etruscans) were native of Italian Peninsula. So there are two opinions, but no one says something about Hungarians, or something related to them.
- Also Hungarian kings used Latin Language to wrote their documents, so that is a prove that Hungarian Language borrowed Latin words.
- In Romanian fi is a verb meaning to be.
- I am = sum (Latin)= sunt (Romanian)
- You are = es = eşti
- He/She is= est = este
- We are = sumus = suntem
- You are = estis = sunteţi
- They are = sunt = sunt Dadas 10:07, 24 September 2008 (CEST)
- Marino Alinei wrote about Hungarian Etruscian relationship. He also visited Hungary a short time ago. Also Zászlós Zsóka György has written a book about the subject, and several others. Also clothes of Etruscian were Hungarian (Hunnian) clothes (trousers, decorated leather belts and the like). So obviously there are more than the two opinions you mention.
- Well, with Latin the question is, where were originally the Latin words borrowed. The grammatic structures show clear similarity with Hungarian. --Hu1 11:55, 24 September 2008 (CEST)
- Sorry but I did not find any arguments about Etruscian - Hungarian relationship. quotation: Well, with Latin the question is, where were originally the Latin words borrowed. The grammatic structures show clear similarity with Hungarian. Which words are you talking about? Anyway I will ask a linguist about the words fi and fiu origin. Dadas 14:35, 25 September 2008 (CEST)
does not work anymore. Can we find this book somewhere else? (Galileo 13:50, 18 March 2013 (CET)).
