Megleno-Romanians in Gudurica: Language and Identity

Megleno-Romanians in Gudurica: Language and Identity
by Annemarie Sorescu-Marinkovic and Mircea Maran

The essay describes the Megleno-Romanian community in the village of Gudurica (Serbia, near the border with Romania), which, because of the very small number of members, was so far neglected by researchers. After World War II, starting in 1946, colonists from all regions of Yugoslavia settled in this village, occupying deserted houses of the former German inhabitants. Among them were a few Megleno-Romanian families from the village Huma (today in the FY Republic of Macedonia), “invisible” in official statistics and “concealed” among Macedonians. The analysis of the language and identity is based on interviews conducted during field research in 2014 in the village Gudurica. The authors offer partial transcription of the interviews at the end of their paper.
