one of my students turned in a dialect profile on the Melugeon dialect
supposed spoken in Appalachia ( the assignment was a profile an the
Applachian dialect based on the class readings) I've never heard of this
before. My question is, it a real dialect-group? The student has sources
she cited. It made the group of speakers sound somewhat like the Romani,
with Melugeon thought to be derived from Turkish.

any info would be appreciated
