RomanianEdit

EtymologyEdit

From the Latin adjective fortis, fortem, from Old Latin forctis, fortis, from Proto-Indo-European *bʰerǵʰ- (to rise, high, hill). Compare French fort in its meaning of "strongly". In older Romanian, the word was also used as a freestanding adverbial, in addition to simply as an intensifier. Cf. also Occitan fòrça with the same semantic development.
