Project description

Romeyka is a seriously endangered Greek minority language spoken in north-eastern Turkey. Several hundred years of language contact with Turkish have led to very rermarkable morphosyntactic contact phenomena. Since we still lack a thorough grammatical description of the language, it is the aim of this dissertation to provide a grammar of the language, with particular attention to language contact phenomena.
