Aromanian is an Eastern Romance variety which is currently considered to be endangered. In this talk, I am going to present a cluster of Aromanian varieties spoken by bilingual Greek-Aromanian speakers in Epirus, North-Western Greece, on the basis of extensive fieldwork. I will first provide some information on the background and basic linguistic properties of these varieties. Then, I will focus on a number of phenomena with ‘mixed properties’, such as certain uses of the medio-passive SE or the system of anaphors/logophors, which could be argued to be the result of language contact with Greek.
