Title: Bilingual speech and language ecology in Greek Thrace: Romani and Pomak in contact with Turkish
Author: Evangelia Adamou
Institution: Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique
Linguistic Field: Applied Linguistics; Sociolinguistics
Abstract: This article examines the influence of language ecology on bilingual speech. It is based on first-hand data from two previously undocumented varieties of Romani and Pomak in contact with Turkish in Greek Thrace; in both cases Turkish is an important language for the community's identity. This analysis shows how the Romani-Turkish “fused lect” was produced by intensive and extensive bilingualism through colloquial contact with the trade language, Turkish. In addition, it shows how semi-sedentary Pomak speakers had limited, institutional contact with Turkish, resulting in more traditional codeswitching and emblematic lexical borrowings.
