Rodi, also known by the ambiguous term Traveller Norwegian, is a language spoken by the indigenous Norwegian Travellers in Norway. It is an offshoot of Norwegian with significant influence of Sinti, Rotwelsch and, especially in recent decades, Scandoromani. It is intelligible to speakers of the latter, which is also sometimes called Traveller Norwegian, Traveller Swedish.
