The interest in Romani, the language of the Roma or "Gypsies", has
grown considerably in recent years. Romani has drawn attention from
a.o. grammarians, sociolinguists, Indologists, language contact
researchers, language planners, educators, typologists and historical
linguists. This Indic language is spoken between five and ten million
people world-wide. The bibliography also covers two other Indic
languages spoken by peripatetic groups, Dom or Domari from the Middle
East, and Lomavren or Bosha of Eastern Turkey and Armenia. The
bibliography contains over 2500 titles in more than thirty languages,
published between 1900 to 2003. English translations are provided for
all titles written in less common languages. There are indexes for
general and linguistic terms, Romani varieties, other languages and
geographical terms. The book further contains a very useful "Guide to
Romani Linguistics", which should enable newcomers to enter this
highly interesting field by pointing to the essential titles in
different subject areas.
