"Els altres valencians", 'the Other Valencians', a phrase inspired by an expression in Joan Fuster's (1962) Nosaltres, els valencians, alludes to the singularity that characterizes the traditionally Spanish-speaking population in the Valencian territory. The present article aims at illustrating the way that Joan Coromines' DECat and DCECH treat the lexicon of these 'other Valencians'. It shows that Coromines uses the label xurro to refer to the corresponding dialects, their speakers and to the territory. The article provides information on (printed and oral) sources used by the etymologist, as well as detailed references. It includes an alphabetical lexical list with additional data and is based on abundant and exactly referenced quotes from the two etymological dictionaries by Joan Coromines.
