Danish Rodi, also known as Traveller Danish, was an extinct language formerly spoken by the Romani people in Denmark. It was an independent language based on Danish with significant influence from the Romani language. It was not intelligible with Angloromani, though it could be intelligible to speakers of Traveller Norwegian and Traveller Swedish. The language was originally spoken by British Romani people who were transported to Denmark by James IV of Scotland in July of 1505.
