Usage notes[edit]

  • The term romaní (Romany, Roma) is of recent coinage in Catalan, reflecting the endonym of the Roma. The older exonym, gitano (Gypsy), is still popular.
  • The IEC and AVL disagree over the proper plural of romaní. The AVL has chosen to prescribe the regular plural romanins as if the term had a Latin derivation, while the IEC has chosen to prescribe the plural form romanís.
