Micul Prinț — in Romanian language, published in Moldova.

Moldovan people speak Romanian, which in their struggle for national identity is sometimes called Moldovan (limba moldovenească).

In terms of linguistics, Romanian and Moldovan are virtually identical. They both belong to the Eastern Romance language family and are based on the Latin alphabet. There are some regional differences in vocabulary, pronunciation, and syntax, but they are not significant enough to justify considering them as separate languages.

However, due to the political and historical differences between Romania and Moldova, the two countries have taken different approaches to the standardization of their national language. Romania has been more consistent in its efforts to standardize the language and has established more strict rules for its use. Moldova, on the other hand, has been more influenced by Russian language and culture, leading to some differences in vocabulary and spelling. When Moldova was a part of the USSR (as Moldavian SSR), the Romanian language there was called Moldovan or Moldavian, written in Cyrillic script.
