Romanian has "domnul" for "mister" & "doama" for "Mrs." "domnisoara" is "miss." The "s" should have a cedilla & is pronounced /S/. The final "a" carries a breve & is pronounced /6/. It would not surprise me to learn that "domnisoara" was cognate to "demoiselle." Rumanian has other l > r words. durere, ache < Latin dolor. singur, alone < singulus. mar, apple < malus. par, hair < pelis etc. Charlie
