Gibb Sahib Shanty or Chantey? (160* d) RE: Shanty or Chantey? 20 May 18


A public admission here, as well: I have not directly examined (but do hope to some day when the opportunity comes) examined the 1850s manuscript I mention. Rather, I am trusting the transcription of the manuscript by Stuart Frank et.al. (I see no reason not to trust his transcription, though as a matter of formality I would like to put my own eyes on it.)

I mention this because it is the earliest document I know of with the word, and it's not, I think, something that people are generally aware of.
