Encyclopedia > Emil Petrovici

Emil Petrovici (1899-1958) was a Romanian linguist, who studied both Romanian and the Slavic languages. His studies included Romanian phonetics, phonology, and Romanian and Slavic dialectology.

He was born in a village -- variously known as Begheiţi, Begejci, Kiss Torac, or Toracul Mic -- in Voivodina (now part of Serbia).

Among his many books were:

  • Despre nazalitate īn limba romānă (On nasalization in the Romanian language)
  • Graiul caraşovenilor (The Croatian language)
  • Folclor din Valea Almajului (Folklore from the Almajului Valley, 1935)
  • Folclor de la moţii din Scărişoara (Folklore of the Moţii of Scărişoara, 1939)
  • Note de folclor de la romānii din Valea Mlavei (Notes on the folklore of the Romanians of the Mlavei Valley, 1942)
  • Texte dialectale (Dialect Texts, Leipzig, 1943)
  • Co-author of Atlasul lingvistic romān (Romanian Linguistic Atlas)

From 1949 to 1954, Petrovici worked on literary and cultural problems of Transylvania and colloborated on several journals published in Cluj-Napoca. He was honored with membership in several scientific academies and societies, and was honored with various titles such as "Om de ştiinţă emerit" ("Man of science emeritus") and "Premiul de stat" ("The State Prize").
