Romani project on the Beeb

Posted on October 16, 2008 by

The Romani Project‘s audio cd ‘Romani Soundbites’ will be broadcast in weekly sequels on BBC 3 Counties Radio, starting next month. The CD contains 30 chapters, each devoted to the roots and usages of individual Romani expressions and word classes, as used by the English and Welsh Romani in what researchers refer to as ‘Anglo-Romani’. The CD is one of the products of a two-year project on Anglo-Romani coordinated by colleague Yaron Matras, which has been funded by the ESRC. Other findings of the project are presented in an article by Matras & collaborators in a recent edition of the journal Anthropological Linguistics.
