Newfoundland English. "Distorted or ingressive speech of a mummer used as a means of disguising one's identity. 'Oh yes, 'twas queer talk—janney talk. Some people can't talk and some of 'em can, you know. Some of them make a queer talk, draw in their voice, and make a queer sound.'" Dictionary of Newfoundland English, 2nd ed. See also janny.
