- shanty: English has two distinct words shanty. The older, ‘shack’ , originated in America, and the fact that to begin with it was mainly used for the houses of Irish immigrants suggests that it may have come from Irish sean tig ‘old house’. Shanty ‘sailor’s song’  probably comes from chantez, the imperative plural of French chanter ‘sing’.
