Bilingual speech and language ecology in Greek Thrace : Romani and Pomak in contact with Turkish

de Adamou, Evangelia (Aut.)
Périodique: : Language in society 2010 n°39, p. 147-171 -- [Autres dépouillements]Contenu: This article examines the influence of language ecology on bilingual speech. It is based on first-hand data from two previously undocumented varieties of Romani and Pomak in contact with Turkish in Greek Thrace; in both cases Turkish is an important language for the community's identity. This analysis shows how the Romani-Turkish "fused lect" was produced by intensive and extensive bilingualism through colloquial contact with the trade language, Turkish. In addition, it shows how semi-sedentary Pomak speakers had limited, institutional contact with Turkish, resulting in more traditional codes witching and emblematic lexical borrowings.
