The Eastern Romance "Proto-Romanian" continued to evolve until, at the Slavic Invasion (about 600 AD) the Dacoroman dialect began to separate from the three dialects spoken south of the Danube, Macedoromanian, Istroromanian and Meglenoromanian. It is believed that the four dialects became fully distinct during the 9-th and 10-th centuries.
