Etymology[edit]

From Medieval Latin, Vulgar Latin rōmānicē ‎(in a Roman manner), from Latin rōmānicus < rōmānus. Forms ending in -t are due to the fact -z often replaces -ts at end of a nominative singular form. In this instance, the -z or -s ending is from the -icē ending of rōmānicē, not the addition of an -s to a word ending in -t.[1] Compare Old Provençal romans, cf. also Romansch rumantsch.
