Well, you may keep telling that to yourself. After all I spent
more than 25 years in Bucharest where I was born, so there doesn't
make much sense to contradict me on this issue, I know perfectly
well what I'm talking about. The vocalism is specific to Muntenia,

Then take a look in the dictionary. Catalans accept that their
word (as well as Occitan "greu" or Venetic "grève"), does come
from a vernacular Latin "*grevis". I fail to see any valid reason
why you couldn't accept the same for Romanian "greu".

Well, now you have. If you'd read my message carefully, you
shouldn't have said this.

Before spreading nonsensical stuff here around, you should have
some serious reading on Romance languages.
