Vulnerable Languages and Linguistic Varieties in Serbia

Petar Radosavljević: “The Language of the Bayash Roma in Croatia. The Phonology and Morphology of Bayash Romanian”

On December 20, 2023, Annemarie Sorescu-Marinković, principal investigator of the VLingS project, was guest of the Faculty of Philosophy of the Zagreb University, where she presented and talked about Petar Radosavljević’s book, “The Language of the Bayash Roma in Croatia. The Phonology and Morphology of Bayash Romanian”, published in 2022 by the FF Press. Bayash Romanian is one of the vulnerable linguistic varieties also encompassed by the VLingS project. However, a detailed grammatical description of the Bayash idioms in Serbia is missing, and this variety has been an exclusively oral language so far. Vulnerable language communities around the globe need more dedicated researchers like Petar Radosavljević.
