A short history of the Moldovan language
Moldovan is the name given to the variety of the Romanian language as spoken in the Republic of Moldova. Romanian belongs to the Eastern Romance sub-group of the Italic branch of the Indo-European family of languages.
The Eastern Romance languages descended from Vulgar Latin during the days of the Roman Empire. Little is known about the development of Proto-Romanian before the 10th century, when the region came under the influence of the Byzantine Empire.
During the Middle Ages, Romanian was influenced by the Slavic languages, and also by Greek. The oldest example of written Romanian is a letter dating back to 1521. The first Romanian grammar was published in Vienna in 1780.
Between 1940 and 1989, when Moldova was under Soviet rule, the Moldovan Cyrillic alphabet replaced Latin as the country’s official alphabet. During this time the Soviet Union insisted that the Moldovan language was distinct from Romanian. Today Moldovans have returned to the Latin script, but the debate about the whether the language is separate or not continues. Read more

Did you know…
- Moldovan is the name of one of the languages spoken in the breakaway region of Transnistria, where it is co-official with Ukrainian and Russian. Here it is written using the Cyrillic alphabet.
- The Moldovan variety of Romanian is also spoken in two regions of Ukraine (Chernivtsi Oblast and Budjak) and eight counties of Romania (territories that were once part of the Principality of Moldova).
The Moldovan economy
Moldova has a small, open, largely agricultural economy, which – despite recent improvements – remains one of the poorest in Europe.
After emerging from Soviet rule, Moldova introduced a market economy and a national currency. Since 2001 the country’s economy has had an annual growth of between 5% and 10%. Between 2006 and 2012 poverty rates fell dramatically, making the country one of the world’s top performers in poverty reduction.
Remittances from Moldovans living abroad account for almost 38% of the country’s GDP – the second highest percentage in the world.
