Kutzo Vlachs

Kutzo-Vlachs, an isolated group of Rumanians on both slopes of the Pindus range, Balkan Peninsula, mixed with numerous Albanian and Greek elements, speak a corrupt Rumanian dialect, which the Rumanians of Wallachia and Moldavia have much difficulty in understanding. Kutzo-Vlach, meaning "Crippled Wallachians," is a term of contempt applied to them by the Greeks; population about 200,000.
