The social and linguistic development of Angloromani by Ian F Hancock( Book )

2 editions published in 1977 in English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper traces the development in Britain of Angloromani, and argues that this language developed within the first half- century after the arrival of the Gypsies in Britain as a specifically reduced contact language between English and Gypsy beggars and outlaws. Evidence indicates that Angloromani was developed as a "compromise" language and one which would prevent outsiders from becoming familiar with the Gypsies' language. Evidence of the status of Angloromani as a pidgin is discussed. A description of Angloromani contains information on the phonology, grammatical features, and lexicon of Angloromani, and on the relationship between this language and English and Romanes. (Am)

Problems in the creation of a standard dialect of Ṛomanés by Ian F Hancock( Book )

4 editions published between 1974 and 1975 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Romanes is the collective name for dialects spoken by over six million Rom throughout the world. It is felt that a standard language is an essential factor for the attainment of a united future and the possible creation of the Gypsy state of Romanestan. This paper deals with some of the problems involved in creating such a unified and standardized language, particularly problems of orthographic standardization. The central issues include: (1) prevailing non-Gypsy attitudes towards the Rom and Romanes, with the consequent effects upon the attitudes of the speakers toward themselves and their language; (2) the diversity of dialects, which raises the question of whether a composite variety should be created rather than standardizing one existing dialect; (3) the problem of individuals who no longer speak Romanes per se, but rather creolized forms of the language; and (4) the question of literacy, and attitudes towards it and formal education in general. Accompanying the discussion of these issues are a historical sketch of Romanes and a description of its modern dialects, a phonological description and a discussion of specific linguistic problems, specifically those encountered in devising an orthography.
