In BoT, maybe we were hearing a translation of a conversation they were holding in Romulan, and in TEI, they were speaking in a language they were less versed in because they were talking to Spock?

Personally, I find the 'everyone wears the same bowl cut and most people wear boring uniform jackets' downgrade of the Romulan people as they were seen in TNG-era to be a lot more annoying than minor variance in writing style for their dialog.
Absolutely, yes!!! It was like everyone of them was a member of the Moe Howard fan club.
