Robert Doričić

Robert spent his earliest chilhood between his home in Mošćenička Draga and his grandparent's house in the village of Žejân/Žejane, where he learned Žejanski, his second language. His childhood experiences sparked a deep curiosity about and passion for his grandparents' language and the everyday history of the village, for which his grandmother and grandfather have been a continual, rich source of information. After becoming aware of the fragility of this endangered language, he joined the project Preservation of the Vlaški and Žejanski Language and became its active contributor. Click on the audio file link below to hear him read his essay „Juva-j pulju?" (Where's the bird?), which he presented at the The Days of the Vlaški and Žejanski Language in 2009.
