Book Information


Title: A Grammar of Domari
Written By: Yaron Matras
Series Title: Mouton Grammar Library [MGL] 59

Domari is an Indo-Aryan language that is now highly endangered. Its speakers were traditionally nomadic metalworkers and musicians who lived in tiny, geographically scattered and socially isolated communities throughout the Middle East. The grammar is based on conversational material recorded in Jerusalem in the mid-1990s with some of the last speakers of this particular variety.
