Aspects of Romany and Traveller Vocabulary
An extensive book by Robert Dawson and Jess Smith on the Romani and Nawken Dialects of Britain. This is not some academic list but the real thing – heard from dozens of people and recorded with permission, and usually within context. Modern Romani phrases for such things as petrol, lawn mower, AIDS etc. This would be useful to anyone with a general or academic interest in the languages, whether they have a Traveller background or not.
