What is Lunfardo?

Lunfardo is a dialect originated and developed in the late 19th and early 20th centuries in the lower classes in Buenos Aires and the surrounding Gran Buenos Aires.

Some lingustics considered that began as prison slang in the late 19th century, so guards would not understand the prisoners

Lunfardo can be considered the language of Argentine tango because most of the lyrics of tango use lunfardo.
