Kurbetcha (or Gurbetcha) is a creole language with what appears to be predominantly Romani vocabulary and Cypriot Turkish grammar, spoken by the Gurbeti (Muslim Roma) of Cyprus. The Kurbet/Gurbeti have traditionally also spoken Turkish. Some of them settled at the end of 19th century in Ottoman Balkan. The majority settled in the north after 1974, but many of those have returned to the south (i.e. the areas under the effective control of the Republic of Cyprus) in recent years.
