why is it "thanks" and not "thank you"? It is the same no? Thanks or thank you in advance for the answer
Looks like "merci" in french. Romanian and french have a common ancestor. Maybe the "Mer(s-c-z)i" part has some kind of latin root.
Ive been noticing that Romanian is like a Italian-French-Slavic hybrid. Very interesting...
Yes, is a Romance language with Slavic influences because of its geographical location.
