Romani Syntactic Typology

Abstract : The chapter presents an overview of the principal syntactic-typological features of Romani dialects, building on Matras (2002, Chapter 7) and drawing on a representative sample from the Romani Morpho-Syntax (RMS) database including free-speech recordings from RMS and the Pangloss Collection. The chapter is informed by cross-linguistic studies in syntactic typology, as represented by the entries of the World Atlas of Language Structures (WALS) and other selected typological works and covers features including linear order in the noun phrase, constituent order in the verb phrase, possession and external possession and complex clauses.
