Subject: Burgenland-Romani by Dieter W. Halwachs


Universitat Graz

with the collaboration of Gerd Ambrosch, Katharina Deman & Ursula

Roman; this is how the Roma living in the southern part of Burgenland
(Austria precisely since 1921, formerly Western Hungary) call their
non�vlah variety of Romani. The Burgenland�Roma migrated form Eastern
Hungary and Croatia in the 15th century.
The close relationship of Roman to two other non vlah groups in
Slovenia (Prekmurski�Roma) and in Western Hungary is manifest from
identical personal names as well as from various parallel linguistic
structures. At present Roman is in danger of extinction since it is
used almost exclusively in intimate communicative situations among the
minority whose number does not exceed 2000 people.
The sketch will present a description of the phonology, morphology,
syntax, and the lexicon including text samples. In addition we shall
present research material concerning language use and attitude towards
the dialect. The data were collected and interpreted with the
assistance of native speakers.
