A more specific name for standard Romanian, used to distinguish it from the Aromanian (Macedo-Romanian), Megleno-Romanian and Istro-Romanian languages.
Daco-Romanian is the term used to identify the Romanian language in contexts where distinction needs to be made between the various Eastern Romance languages. Certain sources classify these four languages as dialects of a larger Romanian language, hence the need for this distinction. It is spoken by 23 million people as a native language and 4 million people as a foreign language. The origin of the term "Daco-Romanian" can be traced back to the first printed book of Romanian grammar, written by Samuil Micu and Gheorghe Şincai. There, the Romanian dialect spoken north of the Danube is called lingua Daco-Romana to emphasize their concept on its origin and its area of use, which includes the former Roman province of Dacia.
