The Hungarian and Slavic (North and West-Slavic) examples won't point in
that direction with respect to Romanian. And the big thing here is ,
Albanian _is_ not a neighbour of Romanian.
At least they have not been neighbours for more as 1500 years after some
sources and more as 2000 years after other sources.
