Writing Romani: The Pragmatics of Codification in a Stateless Language.
Matras, Yaron
Applied Linguistics, v20 n4 p481-502 Dec 1999
Offers a survey of recent codification efforts of the Romani language, a stateless, non-territorial language with no written tradition. In a pragmatic corpus analysis, three action-oriented functions of Romani codification are identified: a communicative function, on emblematic function, and a mobilizing-rallying function.
