1. You still avoid to discuss the main issue, that is "mereu" not
being related at all with "mare" or with "mai";
2. "mare" & "mai" are still unrelated in Romanian, the latter is
the comparative, coming from Latin "magis" (`more`, `to a greater
extent`) as well as Italian "mai", Cat., Occ. "més", Fr. "mais",
Sp. "más", Port. "mais"; Romanian "mare" could have a mixed story
out of "mas/marem" but not interfering with Latin "magis".
