Romani Studies

A provisional phonology of Gabor Romani

Romani Studies (2008), 18, (2), 155–199.

Abstract

The Gabor Roma in Transylvania, Romania, speak a dialect closely related to Kalderash. The phonology of this dialect includes some distinguishing features, such as the presence of nine vowel phonemes, a lack of jotation and a simplified syllable template. Certain vowels are analysed using an autosegmental approach.
