The Latin term “Resianica” has been introduced by Willem Vermeer, but has never reached the public domain. He used it in the English version of an article that only appeared in Slovene translation. In this Slovene version the term is rendered as “literatur/a/ o rezijanščini”, that is, “literature on Resian” (“Rekonstruiranje razvoja samoglasniških sestavov v rezijanskih govorih”, Slavistična revija 35/3, 1987, p. 242).
