I probably know even less than you about this, but from what I've read I know that there are several Aromanian dialects. None of them has risen to being considered standard by all Aromanians and also the communication among the Aromanians of the different branches is rather poor. As such it turns out that what some may consider the proper language, for others it's not, and vice versa.
Words like armãneashti, easti, muljari, bisearicã
appear in linguistic works by Tiberius Cunia, who is trying to help in establishing a common standard of Aromanian. He seems to have the support of Aromanians from all branches. See, for instance:
- Cursul di scriari armănească
(there are links on the right to each lesson)
- Dictsiunar a Limbãljei Armãnească

Now your own dialect might differ from this emerging standard, although I suspect it's just very small differences in vocabulary and phonology. This may seem to be unfortunate, but it is unavoidable, especially for languages that are geographically diverse. In fact I don't know of any language that is so uniform as to be easily standardized.
