language?[edit]

interesting article, i've never heard of the Lyuli before. It'd be improved by more information on their native language, however - the only reference to it at the moment is the comment that "Luli for clan is tupar". Any other info available? Is it an Indo-Aryan language like Roma, as suggested by their Indian origin story, or is it Turkic like most of the rest of Central Asia? --Krsont 23:45, 5 August 2006 (UTC)

As for their language, it's really not a language of the Roma (and the fact of Roma's existence was probably unknown for Luli before the migration). As one article sais, their language is unintelligible for Kirghiz people, and for Russians and Tatars too (my own observations). I don't know about their native language, but they understand Uzbek and Tajik, as they originate fom those countries. --Untifler 09:00, 6 August 2006 (UTC)
I've since done some brief research on my own that suggests that it is an Indo-Aryan language, related to but seperate from Roma. The Luli language is mentioned as a dialect of the Domari language on this ethnologue page [1]. Which suggests the Luli are just a Russian branch of the Dom people. --Krsont 09:44, 6 August 2006 (UTC)
Russian ethnographists who study Luli such as S.Gabbasov and N.Bessonov consider them to be a different branch of "Gypsies", not Dom people. RomanyChaj-रोमानीछाय (talk) —Preceding undated comment added 15:47, 28 March 2009 (UTC).

er, what?[edit]

The traditional occupations are similar to those of the Roma: chiromancy, quackery, musicians, stealing etc. - O Rly? Hakluyt bean 22:54, 13 September 2006 (UTC)

It is just the usual racist vandalism that need to be reverted every time it appears. Desiphral-देसीफ्राल 16:13, 4 February 2007 (UTC)
