This chapter discusses the word-lists of Richard Head. Although Head based his lists on Harman's, he added to it and presented it on two formats that were more accessible. Both of these lists, one alphabetized by the English term, the other by the cant, took on a life of their own and appeared in various formats for more than a century. The English-Cant list was the more popular of the two, because this suggests that users wanted to be able to produce cant rather than understand it.
