Words You Should Understand in Moldova

I've been brewing this page for quite some time, and I think such a page is necessary - a collection of words and phrases that you will see in Moldova that you should know the meaning of. I am not offering you to learn Romanian or Russian, nor will I give any instructions on how to pronounce these words. But with this information, you should at least be able to recognise them in the street.
