Beskrivning av projektet
This project (2019-2023) is the first, large-scale endeavour in Romani linguistics to study interaction of the speakers of Romani dialects in Estonia and to draw from interactional dialectology. It is also the first large-scale linguistic project to focus on Romani dialects in Estonia. According to estimates made by the Council of Europe, there are currently 600-1,500 Roma in Estonia, mostly belonging to Latvian (Lotfitka) and Russian (Xaladytko) Romani groups. This project will create unique, large-scale archives of videotaped and transcribed conversations of Roma. Other outputs will be an edited volume, peer reviewed articles and a PhD thesis. This project will be coordinated by Kimmo Granqvist at the University of Helsinki, supported by a team of Finnish and Russian Post Docs and an Estonian Doctoral Candidate, as well as Romani fieldwork assistants.
