Csángós of Moldavia

In March 2005 I spent a week in Lábnyik (Vladnic), a Csángó village in Moldavia accompanying some enthusiastic young people who decided to help preserving the knowledge of Hungarian language among the village youth. Csángós are of Hungarian origin (their name stems from a dialectic form of the word "migrate"), and their religion is Roman Chatolic in contrast with the neighbouring peoples living east of the Carpathians. They speak an archaic dialect of Hungarian, that, as said, resembles of the state of the language in the middle ages.
2005 márciusában egy hetet töltöttem egy Lábnyik (Vladnic) nevű moldvai csángó faluban, csatlakozva néhány lelkes fiatalhoz, akik célul tűzték ki a magyar nyelvtudás megőrzését a csángó ifjúság körében. A csángók magyar eredetű szigetet alkotnak a Kárpátokon túli románság között, vallásuk pedig római katolikus, ami szintén szokatlan a Kárpátoktól keletre. Érdekes, archaikus magyar nyelven beszélnek, mely, mint mondják, a középkori nyelvi állapotokat jeleníti meg.
