Romani language, origin and dialects spoken over the world.
Origin and History
Romani (also Romani; Romani) is the Indo-Aryan macro-language of Romani groups spoken in Europe and the USA by around 5-6 million Roma people. Turkey, Spain and Romania are home to the highest populations of Roma residents. These groups are also called Gypsies in English.
According to Ethnologue, seven Romani varieties are sufficiently divergent to be considered their own languages. The majority of these are Vlax Romani, Balkan Romani and Sinte Romani. Some Romani populations speak hybrid languages with preserved Romani-derived vocabulary dependent on the local language. These are classified by linguists as Para-Romani varieties rather than Romani language dialects. The variations can be as significant between the different varieties as the differences between the Slavic languages, for example.
Today's Romani dialects are characterised by the vocabulary acquired since their departure from Anatolia, as well as by divergent phonemic and grammatical characteristics.
Many Roma no longer speak the language or speak separate modern contact languages from the local language with the inclusion of Romanic vocabulary.
There are many explanations for the large range of regional Romani dialects: (1) there is no common language or prestigious Romani dialect to unify the various dialects; (2) Romani is affected by several local languages since it is spoken in several different countries and locations; (3) There is no single population of Romani speakers and not all of them are in communication with each other. The Manchester Romani Project has developed an open database and Romani dialect charts.
The most clustered areas of Romani speakers can be found in Romania. While there are no credible estimates for the precise number of Romani speakers, it may be the largest minority language in the European Union. The largest population of Roma live in Turkey, Spain and Romania. In English, these individuals are sometimes referred to as Gypsies.
