LANGUAGE SPOKEN BY FEW
Vagrants in East End of London Use
an Ancient Celtic Tongue Among
Shelta Tharl is a language used se
cretly among people of the tinker class
and principally to be met with In Scot
land and Ireland. Its use was first dis
covered and made known in 1876 by
Charles K. Leland, an American anti
quarian, and Prof. John Sampson of
Liverpool. One day, while walking
by the seashore at Aberystwyth, they
encountered a tramp who addressed
them in an unknown tongue. Both
were versed in the Romany or gypsy
language and were much surprised to
meet one who spoke a tongue of which
they knew not'a word
They collected a number of phrases
from this man and found on inquiry
that he had acquired this strange
speech from his wife, who was a
tinker. The tinkers, he said, kept
their knowledge of the language a se
cret, speaking it only among them
selves. Later Leland encountered
many other persons who spoke Shelta.
He found that in many of the drinking
places in the East end of London,
where vagrants often congregate, the
language was freely employed, but
that when an outsider made his ap
pearance, it ceased.at once to be spok
en. Scientific methods applied to the
study of Shelta proved that it is no
mere system of back slang or cant, but
an ancient Celtic speech.
Romany, the language of the Eng
lish gypsies, is still spoken by a large
number of persons. Among the ma
jority of them it has become corrupt,
but the older gypsy folk still speak
what is known as "deep'' Romany,
