- This paper focuses on the idiom spoken in one of the Krashovani villages in Romanian Banat -Iabalcea, whose residents identify themselves as Krashovani or Croats, but use the Romanian language in everyday conversation. History and ethnogenesis of this Catholic subethnos is sometimes labeled as an "ethnic enigma". Using the untypical example of Iabalcea, we examine the possibility and mechanisms of language shift or language maintenance under the conditions of a contact with the majority language on the one hand, and of belonging to a relatively closed ethnic group, on the other hand.
