Description:

Sepecides - Romani

Petra Cech &
Mozes F. Heinschink

Sepecides is a non-vlah Romani dialect (Romani belonging to the New Indian
languages) spoken by several related grand families now living in
Izmir/Turkey and Volos/Greece. This formerly united group of basket weavers
split up around 1920, when exchanges of Greek/Turkish population took
place. One part of the group migrated to Turkey and settled finally in
Izmir, the others moved to Volos (Greece) and stayed there. Since then
their previously uniform Romani developed under different linguistical
conditions. Both variants are endangered in their transmission to the
younger generation by the impact of TV and school education. The Izmir
variety of Sepe…ides shows the characteristics of other non-Vlah dialects
like unshortened pronominal forms, Greek, Southern-Slavic but no Rumanian
lexems etc. under the influence of the agglutinative Turkish language it
has preserved a rich derivational morphology absent from corresponding
dialects.

As Sepecides has not previously been described, the sketch will present a
survey of the entire grammatical system as well as short chapters on
phonology and syntax. One chapter will analyze the various influences of
the Turkish language on Sepe…ides and their morphological and idiomatical
implications. Investigations are based on approx. 130 hours of recorded
talks ranging from tales, songs, and biographical notes to short anecdotes
and explanations of phrases and proverbs.
