Etymology[edit]

From a Slavic language, compare Serbo-Croatian volja. Has also influenced variants of the verb vrea, from Latin volere (cf. vroi, voi) due to similarity of sound and meaning, especially after the weak r is removed. The existence of Italian voglia with a similar meaning is also most likely a coincidence, and a Latin etymology for voie (from a root *volia for volō on the basis of the disappearance of the intervocalic l in some other words like muiere, foaie, găină, pai), while technically possible, is quite improbable (the presence of the related word nevoie also makes this less plausible, and nonetheless, the result would probably have normally been *voaie, as with foaie, from folia); however, there are other cases where words can be of two originally different origins with similar meanings and sound and coincide to form one word after a while through confusion of the two.

Noun[edit]

voie f

  1. will
  2. permission
    Nu ai voie faci așa ceva.
    You're not allowed to do something like that.
