Caló (or Spanish Romani) is a dialect spoken by the Gitans or Zincarli (also calés, "dark ones") that came to Spain. Caló uses Romani vocabulary with Spanish grammar, [1] as Spanish Roma lost the full use of their ancestral language.[2] The language is mainly used for private talking between Roma people.
