Romanian[edit]

Etymology[edit]

Probably from Vulgar Latin *aerūgina, from Latin aerūgō, aerūginem (copper rust), with a later change of accent/emphasis to the penultimate syllable in Romanian, which may have occurred due to the influence of derivatives such as rugini, ruginos, etc. Compare Italian ruggine, Friulian ruzin; cf. also Asturian roña. Alternatively, and less likely, from Latin rūbīginem, accusative of rūbīgō (rust), also with a change of emphasis; compare Spanish robín[1]. Cognate to Aromanian arudzinã.

Noun[edit]

rugină f (plural rugini)

  1. rust
