Articles on Romani Language

The paper presents trilingualism among Turkish-speaking Roma children from Bulgaria and the processes of code-switching. The study examines the MLF Model of Myers-Scotton (1993), and shows that this model is not valid in the situation of bilingual (trilingual)
children learning two/three languages simultaneously. They acquire the three languages as a single code, and are not aware of the processes of code-switching. This testifies to the nonapplicability of the MLF Model of Myers-Scotton (1993) in the situation of trilingualism.
