You have 2 different sounds for 'a'? What are you guys doing over there??

(this is as good a job I can do at giving you a hard time about nothing)

EvilHomer
How accurate is this video? Did he get things right?

@Evil Homer:

Everything is perfectly accurate, I'm surprised by the lack of butthurt Romanians in the comments section denying all slavic influance, because that's a thing now.

@TG:

ă - is pronounced "uh" like in "duhhhh!"

â and î - I've noticed are very hard to pronounce by foreigners, the closest I can explain it is that it sounds either a like longer vocalized version of the sound of the Quake 1 guy jumping, or a short and painful male orgasm.

Eh, English has three different sounds for "a," plus some dipthongs (hat, day, awful). We just don't use accents to differentiate them. Drives ESL students nuts.

The Romanian Î sounds a lot like the Japanese U to me.

That guy
I said that about the 'a' sounds because for a Romance language, that's weird.

Miss Henson's 6th grade class
True enough. All of Spanish's vowels are wide open. That drives ESL students nuts, too, but it makes Brazilians easier to teach.

I can say the word "butterfly" in all five Romance languages! Beat that!

What do you mean "all 5 Romance languages"? There's way more than 5 of them still in existence. Plus there's all the ones that have died out. Plus there's the various dialects of the existing languages.

Off the top of my head, there's French, Spanish, Portuguese, Galego, Italian, Latin, Romanian, Romansh, and Italian. And I'm sure there's a bunch more that I'm just not remembering at the moment.

Okay, the five major modern ones, all right? Mariposa, borboleta, farfale, flutule, and papillon. So pretty!

Not sure about the history segment; Wasn't it pretty well documented by certain high-profile column friezes that all Dacian men were put to the sword by the Romans who were sick of King Duras flexing his nuts in their backyard?

I've never heard of that one before, but the only certain thing is that a lot of fake history got thrown in the mix during the wave of 20th century Balkan nationalism.

I'm guessing this guy went with the standard Romanian history taught in schools, which is heavily mythologized and still bears the marks of Ceasescu style strong-man worship and isolationism.

Since the subject proper was the language not the history he probably wanted to avoid summoning waves of butthurt romanian patriot retards that would have just ruined the comment section.

Add to that the recent completly idiodic pseudo-history movement that states Dacians were the actual progenitors of the Romans and the origin of all Latin civilization. And that the Vatican and the Freemasons re-wrote history and excluded us, the "real" Romans.
