T'Pol: It's "Romulan"
I've often wondered if Hoshi was right and T"Pol was wrong, Hoshi had just seconds before heard the world pronouced, she is skill in her craft and has a especially good ear for languages.

If Hoshi then programmed the translater she was working on (and that programming later made it's was into the UT) to rended Romillian as Romulan, the people in the show might have alway been using the wrong term.
