Romanian[edit]

Etymology[edit]

Various etymologies have been proposed. One theory is that it derives from a Vulgar Latin root *reemendāre, from emendāre (through an intermediate early Romanian form *remda → *rembda). Another theory derives it from Latin rīgidāre, present active infinitive of rīgidō. Other more improbable theories derive it from a Slavic root raditi ("take care of"), a Latin root reobdurāre, a derivative of Latin regere, Latin rabidāre, Latin repedāre, or Latin *rubidāre (to rage). Compare Aromanian aravdu, arãvdare.
