Catalan term or phrase: carlà
Oriol Puig i Almirall has apparently written many stries and plays among which is:
"El carlà de la Geltrú"

Unless this refers to "Carlist" I cannot find any reference to it.

Anyone familiar with that area able to throw any light on this for me, please?

Sorry there is no further context!

Thanks.

Andy gets the points as much for the useful reference as anything else. Though I'll probably use "Castellan" as that was one of my favourite words from my old "Dungeons & Dragons" days ;-)

castellan


Explanation:
Chambers: the governor or captain of a castle

The explanation is as for previous contributor (same dictionary!)

For a novel/story title, his term sounds better, I think.
