Abstract:

Dolenjska Romani as presented here is spoken by a group of Roma in the
Dolenjska region and Bela Krajina in Slovenija. It is basicly a dialect of
the Southern Central group, but shows remarkable connections to Southern
Balkan dialects as well as a number of interesting innovations unknown in
other dialects. It gained some attention by linguists, as the scholar Rade
Uhlik observed very few structures and lexemes of Greek origin in this
dialect and assumed, the Dolenjski Roma's ancestors had never or hardly
touched Greek territory in the past. Thus data and recordings of Dolenjska
Romani were evaluated in several publications during the last decade,
focussing on the degree of Greek influence on this dialect. With the
integration of Slovenia into the EU, the codification of the various
minorities' dialects in Slovenia became urgent.

In respond to this demand, a codification of Dolenjska Romani is presented,
based on a wide range of texts, recordings and printed material of
spontaneous codifications by Dolenjski Roma themselves. It begins with a
survey of historical traces and references on the group's origin, followed
by a comprehensive description of the dialect's phonology, morphology and
syntax, including variants spoken in Southern Slovenija. Although the book
does not comprise a text appendix or a glossary, all features discussed are
illustrated by various examples of recordings or written texts for an
optimal documentation of this fascinating Romani dialect.
