And "corindă" (chiefly in Transylvania and Banat). With
its diminutival variant "corinditză". (e.g. from old songs:
"corindtză cu coditză" & "corinde-mi, Doamne!".

there is no slavic influence in a > o in romanian . It is enough to see the hidronomy in Bulgaria for seeing there is no reason to
think so.The slavs conserved the ancient hidronimy. Take a look please at Marica in Bulgaria ( old Marisia), Alta= aphluent of
Dnepre.Further there are examples of old ancient rivers which today have the form: Arda, Cibra, Erma, Ibãr, Iskãr, Nesta, Struma,
The only pne which shows an a>o in this apace is Osãm = old Asamus. Is this the sign for the influence of slavic in rom a>o?
