EtymologyEdit

From French négresse.

NounEdit

negresă f (plural negresemasculine equivalent negru)

  1. black woman

Usage notesEdit

The word, unlike the modern meaning of the French etymological source it was borrowed from in the 19th century, does not have a negative or racist connotation as a slur, and is considered a neutral term. In French, the word has since been replaced by the neutral term noire.
