Abstract.  In this paper I aim to show the importance of comparison and study of languages, in order to point out their connections, especially regarding Romanic languages. Thus an enlargement of knowledge of Latin’s lingua mater, the Indo-European one, is possible. I also point out the importance of substratum in dialectal differentiation as soon as new languages appeared, emphasizing the importance of confronting both theories and practice of speakers of a language and of its varieties. pp. 43–52

Keywords: Romanic, language, Indo-European, Latin, substratum, dialectal
