Abstract


In the end of 18th century, a population, who had special characteristics and a key distinctive element of Latino-phonetics, draws attention to some European researches. Aromanian’s (Vlachs’) origin and language have been an object of research for many well-known scientific institutions in Balkan, Europe etc. The literature, which was inherited by Latin speakers in Balkan Peninsula, was an important and valuable source of information until the end of 18th century. One of the first researches in this period, Johan Tunman (1774) expresses some discomfort of research absence in this field. It is needed some decades that researches should not be ascertainments, but they could be based on evidences and arguments. Researches on Vlachs and their language (Aromanian) have undertaken a new development nowadays. In general, they represent opinions and hypotheses in relation to key problems such as ethnical and lingual origin of this population that converge in similar theses and opinions. The object of the research in this article is a historical point of view of Vlachs and their language.
