The only work on the subject written by a Chango scholar, this book disputes the theory that the Changos are of Magyar origin, a theory based, to a large extent, upon their Catholicism, demonstrating that they are, in fact, of Romanian origin. Dumitru Mărtinaș bases his argument on linguistic evidence, reaching the conclusion that “the study of the old Transylvanian dialect of the Changos illustrates and demonstrates the Transylvanian Romanian origin of the people who speak it.”
The author, Dumitru Mărtinaș, was born to a Chango family in the village Butea, in the county of Iași, Romania. He dedicated his life to the study of the origins of the population to which he belonged. He made linguistic and historical investigations in Târgu Mureș, where he worked as a professor of Romanian literature and language, as well as in his native village and other Chango villages.
“This densely argued study is presented in a dispassionate and scholarly manner, based in large measure on technical ethnographic, phonetic, and linguistic matters...” - P.W. Knoll, Choice.
