The seven words [баядерка, въпор, дживгар, кантарион, керал, латинин (латинец), морто] are excerpted from an unpublished monograph which considers the etymology of Bulgarian words of Latin and Greek origin. The words considered are not necessarily directly derived from Greek or Latin. In most cases there is an intermediary language: Russian, French, etc. The contribution of the study is not equal for all the words: for some it sheds new light on the problem; for others it amounts to additional information or corrections of already existing explanations.
