Decided to add some basic Romani grammar here by some examples (to help me in my own remembering)…

te šunel – to hear (slišati)

Present

me šunav – I hear

tu šunes – you hear

jov/joj šunel – he/she hears

amen šunas – we hear

tumen šunen – you (pl) hear

jon šunen – they hear

Past

me šundjom – I heard

tu šundjal – you heard

jov/joj šundja – he/she heard

amen šundjam – we heard

tumen šundjan – you (pl) heard

jon šunde – they heard

some phrases –

  • šundjom, hoj kadaj bešen the aver Roma.
    I heard, that other Roma live here also.
  • šundjan kaja paramisa tumendar.
    they heard this story from you (pl).

and some basic math!

  • 1 + 1 = 2
    djek te djek hi duj
  • 2 -1 =1
    duj minus djek hi djek
  • 4 ÷ 2 = 2
    štar deljeno duj hi duj
  • 2 x 4 = 8
    duvar štar hi ofto
