Title: Lithuanian Romani
Written By: Anton Tenser
Series Title: Languages of the World/Materials 452
Description:

Lithuanian Romani is a dialect spoken by a small population of Roma
(Gypsies) living on the territory of present-day Lithuania, as well as
recent migrants from this area to the Western Europe. The dialect was
tentatively assigned to the Northeastern group of Romani dialects. It is
the only dialect in this group the grammar of which has not been previously
described in literature. The primary goal of this work is to provide a
grammatical description of the dialect, using as a framework the RMS
database developed at the University of Manchester, supported by
transcribed recordings of a questionnaire conceived within the RMS project.

The main body of the book is descriptive, presenting Phonology, derivation
and inflection of Nominal and Verbal categories. The fourth chapter deals
with grammatical relations within the phrases, including cases,
subordination, coordination and word order.

Within the main body of the book, there are details concerning borrowing
into the dialect, and also comparisons, on specific issues, of Lithuanian
Romani to other dialects in the Northeastern group. These two topics form
the last two chapters of the book, entitled Borrowing and Dialect
Classification. The Dialect Classification chapter also serves as a
conclusion and argues the validity of classifying Lithuanian Romani as
belonging to the Northeastern group.
