Abstract

SALAMANCA GUTIERREZ, Gastón F. ROMANI MORPHOLOGY IN A TRADITIONAL FOLKTALE (PARAMÍCHI). Lit. lingüíst. [online]. 2013, n.27, pp.243-280. ISSN 0716-5811.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0716-58112013000100013.

This article presents the most relevant morphological features of the Romani spoken in Chile through the morphological segmentation of a traditional tale. Following the introduction, some important phonological and morphological aspects of the Gipsy language are presented. Specifically, we present the segmental phonemes and examples for each of them; the syllabic structure, also with examples; and the slots which are displayed in the word classes nouns and verbs, with their respective filler morphemes. The next point, the most extensive one and the focus of this work, contains two versions of the tale: one with the text both in Romani and Spanish displayed in two parallel columns; and the other containing the same tale divided into 152 statements (morphologicaly segmented). Under each statement, the meaning of each morpheme and a semi-free translation are given.

Keywords : gypsies; Romani; gypsy language; gypsies folktales; Romani morphology.
