Eastern Romance languages

The Eastern Romance languages:[1] are a group of Romance languages. Today, the group consists of the Daco-Romance[1] subgroup which comprises the Romanian language, Aromanian language (Macedo-Romanian) and two other related minor languages, Megleno-Romanian, and Istro-Romanian; and the Castelmezzano dialect, in southern Italy.[2][3][4]

Some classifications also include the extinct Dalmatian language (otherwise included in the Italo-Dalmatian group) as part of the Daco-Romance subgroup,[5][6][7] considering Dalmatian a bridge between Italian and Romanian.[8][9]
