Adurgari (ادرغارى) is a secret cant of the nomadic Shaikh Mohammadi tribe of peddlers of Afghanistan, used especially in the presence of outsiders. It is not a native language but is taught to children around age seven; all adults speak it in addition to Persian and Pashto. It contains a mixture of words, but resembles Kohistani of Pakistan.
