The Gypsies and their language have been an object of attention for centuries. Numerous accounts describing their arrival in a particular area attest to the fascination of local people with what they regarded as an unintelligible language. These “strange” nomads and their language have attracted the attention of a number of researchers. Attempts to describe their dialects can be found even in some of the earliest records related to the Roma.
