Rhaeto-Romanic Filisur

Chesa Antupada was home to the last representatives of the Romanesque village dialect, the siblings Anton (1896-1982) and Babetta Lorenz (1904-1980).

Until the end of the 19th century, Romansh was mainly spoken in Filisur, but then gradually it was replaced by German . In 1910, 21.92% of the population of Filisur spoke Romansh, but today it is only 3%.

Romansh has been one of the four national languages since 1938. It is divided into the five idioms Surmiran, Putèr, Vallader, Sursilvan, Sutsilvan – and into numerous village dialects. In the lower Albula Valley, Surmiran is still spoken in everyday life. Filisur Romansh was influenced by Surmiran and Putèr from the Upper Engadine. 

In the audio, you will have the opportunity to listen to the Romansh village dialect of Filisur. In a 1954 broadcast on Swiss radio, Babetta Lorenz talks about the tradition of baking bread, Romansh - far paun. The audio file can be found at the back of the pictures.
