|The web version of this book includes new passages by the author not found in the original printed version. The original edition of this book (1987) uses diacritics for Romanian and Romani (Rromanes), and includes texts in the Cyrillic and Greek alphabets. When possible, care has been taken to reproduce these diacritics, or their phonological equivalents. This has not been entirely possible because of HTML limitations. For a faithful rendition of all diacritics and texts, it is recommended that the printed version of The Pariah Syndrome be consulted.|
|Throughout, except in quotes from other works, the spelling Rumania(n), rather than the more widely-accepted Romania(n) has been preferred in order to distinguish it more readily from Romani.|
