S'Arbaresca
THE JARGON OF THE COPPERSMITHS IN ISILI

In this regard, it is useful to remember that s'arromaniscu is not a unique jargon of only coppersmiths, but it was also used by the whole series of Stagneri and conzinos [the one who fixes metal objects] travelling around the whole island, and in various other towns in Sardinia: Terralba, Gergei and others.

It is never used within the family or community, except in occasional moments or jokes that require some show of exuberance and verbosity. Over the years, some researchers have done the study and census of words forming s'arbaresca, publishing their research, so it is considered unnecessary to do so on this occasion.
