Salvemos el Español/Save Spanish


BROUND2

Yo  Am♥- Am♥-Am♥-Am♥-Am♥-super AMO!!!  Mis raices, mi cultura, y mi lenguaje.  Yo no soy fan, si no enemiga de la mutivolución(mutilación durante el proceso de desarollo y evolución)que nuestro querido y bello lenguaje sufre.

Vamos al caso : “Muchos anglocismos an entrado al Español via argot. Ejemplos como: el uso del verbo “hangear” que se deriva de la frase de Inglés “To hang out”, o  el uso de la palabra “Chance” en vez de lo apropiado OPORTUNIDAD.”  Puede que usted este de acuerdo que estas palabras sean una corrupción del Español, pero aparte de eso los origenes de unos de estos anglocismos prueban ser muy interesantes.”  –toptenreviews.com

Otros ejemplos incluyen: El uso de las pablabras OK, Y BYE” En Español lo correcto es :  Esta bien, de acuerdo, si , Y: Adios, hasta luego, nos vemos.  Hay gente que esta estudiando Español y con mucho entusiasmo preguntan sobre estas frases,  y comen hancia  por aprenderce las , pero que chistoso si nosotros ya ni si quiera las usamos.


Si ,al parecer es el nacer de una subcultura.   Pero! A mi…. simplement me hace estremecerme!! Es algo que: se oye atroz, es irespetuoso a nuestra lengua y gente, y mas que nada HOMBRE!! En serio, que ya se nos acabo TOTALMENTE  toda la originalidad y creatividad!!  Es esta asombrosa possibilidad cierta?? En vez de convertirnos en unos copeones seamos orgullosos de lo que somos, Y propongamonos a contribuir al desarollo sano y florecimiento prospero de nuestro lindo y hermoso Español.  Otro echo muy triste es el de los casos donde hay aquellos que se avergüenzan de su lenguaje y se reusan a hablarlo, o simplemente  lo creen inferior,intrascendente, insignificante y se olvidan por completo de el.  Tanto asi que no se lo enseñan a sus hijos.  Por que cortar y matar tan bellas raices?? Por eso yo abogo y apelo  que salvemos juntos el Español.

Café con leche (Spanish: “coffee with milk”) also called cafebar, is a Spanish[citation needed] coffee beverage. Similar to the French café au lait and the Italian caffè e latte, café con leche is a coffee beverage consisting of strong or bold coffee (sometimes espresso) mixed with scalded milk in approximately a 1:1 ratio. Sugar or a pinch of salt are added according to taste.

Sweet bread is a fine culinary masterpiece, it’s artisans are called “Panaderos” (bakers) & Panaderias(bakeries) are their studios/galleries. These men come in an toil early in the morn so that our breakfast tables may be graced with such a treat that is very near & dear to our culture. For a “Chido” experience I suggest taking a little field trip to a  Mexican Panaderia & raiding the treasure trove that is the shelves there.   Pan Dulce, however has also found it’s way in to grocery stores, so keep an eye out next time you shop.  For breakfast, as a snack, dessert, or as comfort food…  For holidays, celbrations or whenever!

“Pan Dulce” is SUPER CHIDO FOOD!!

Chido Spanish:(An intresting closer look)


face-spanishteacher_pointing_at_blackboard 0764576437

Do you know the phrase for  “excuse me” in Spanish??

It’s “Con (su) permiso”  this literally  means = With (your)Permission.

It’s a simple little phrase &  if you learn it you will sound very : educated, polite,  and impress others with your Spanish.

“Con permiso”  is a very common,  and versatile expression.  Let’s explore it’s usage.

#1 It can be used to excuse yourself to get by someone, especially when people are talking, and you must interrupt them to get by.  Sometimes people will add the word “SU” the formal or extra polite form of  the word YOU= Con su permiso.  When you say this  often times you will hear as a response : “Propio” =Proper (Meaning you are proper, it is proper… you’re polite, how polite of you, of course go ahead…etc) Or “Pase usted” = Please,go ahead, Do go on by

#2 Another use for “con permiso” is when entering a home.  = “Excuse me, I’m coming in”.

#3 :  If you are doing something with people whom you should be respectful towards such as talking to your girlfriend/ boyfriend’s parents,  a boss, teacher etc… When leaving it is poper to excuse yourself  by saying “Con Permiso”=  “I will be going now”.

#4  Can be used to mean “May I” or “excuse me” when partaking or making use of something i.e. taking food, making use of a telephone…etc

Compermiso is basically an “excuse me.” It can be casual or formal depending on they way you use it.  For example: If  you are watching T.V , and someone happens to stand in front of it (sound familiar? LOL It does for me. I have a friend who always gets so intrigued with stuff on T.V that he ends up standing right next to it =P ) you can say “con permiso” to ask them to clear the way. In  colloquial Spanish , the phrase has been shortened to “CON PER” it is oftten said runned together “comper” this version is very fun, friendly,  & casual. It is often used by youngsters. If the T.V situation should occur and there is no response lol ( the person’s being  a goof, or hypnotized by the boob tube) you can switch compermiso to “Com-per!” = ex-cuse me!!”  lol

Another form of “Con permiso” is = Con permisito .This is the diminutive version.  The diminutive in Spanish is not always used to make things small. It is very very commonly used  to soften words or indicate affection. Simply put, when you want to sound cute or make a request come out in a extra nice tone, rather than a commanding one you can use it. Saying conpermisito would connote a meaning of  “with your dear, caring, benevolent, wonderful permission”

Examples:   A guy could say this to a girl when he wants to get by & sound cute or extra polite. Another example would be, say  you are late and are trying to get to your seat at a theater , or class…etc  The diminutive “compermisito” can soften the embarrassing / rude factor of the situation.

ABOUT THE BLOG


So I’ve spent sometime having  some  fun exploring, and  finding out about things that are   ” Sugoi! ”  すごい ,  “chwego”  최고,
好极了, “hǎojíle”….etc  Ha ha, in other words : Right now the Eastern culture wave is all the rage, and has captured my intrest as well. However, although I have had a  great time finding out about other countries, culture, pop culture, and modern culture…  Along the way I found  that there something missing in the current circle of all things COOL. No one is representing all things “CHIDO!”  Chido= Mexican Slang for: cool, awesome, amazing, great…etc  I’ve noticed that alot of people are becoming so enthused, enamored, and going so completely head over heals with  such things that they are forgetting how great our culture is too. And so I would like to dedicated this blog to representing all the neat things about my culture & sharing them with others.

So I’ve spent sometime having  a bunch of  fun exploring, and  finding out about things that are ” Sugoi! ” (Japanese) すごい ,  “chwego”  최고(Korean),  好极了, “hǎojíle”(Mandarin)….etc.   Ha ha, in other words : Right now the Eastern culture wave is all the rage, and has captured my interest as well. However, although I have had a  great time finding out about other countries: their  culture, pop culture, and modern culture…  Along the way I found  that there’s something missing in the current circle of all things “COOL”. There is not enough props or representation of all things  “CHIDO!”  Chido= Mexican Slang for: cool, awesome, amazing, great…etc

It’s sad that some have become so enthralled with Eastern culture that I’ve actually heard some people say “This and this is so cool, there is no such thing in my culture, when in fact there is, but due to lack of knowledge they believe their culture to be lacking . Or My culture is not as fun, amazing, or fascinating. I wish I could speak that language, live in that country, or be from that culture.” It’s so totally true that they’re many way cool things about these cultures and that they are infectious and interesting. But I feel that in the process of enjoying other cultures some are forgetting or purposely turning their backs on their own cultures. They look down on, underestimate, and give their roots the brush.

So the goal of this blog is to spread “Chido” l♥ve all over the place. To share all things cool about my culture with new friends. I want to honor & represent  Mexico & it’s culture with a truthful representation full of  respect & pride, without shouldering, or promoting stereotypes.


WELCOME ALL to the blog , &  let’s have a  “MEGA SUPER CHIDO”   TIME  a.k.a.  A blast!!


ABOUT ME: (I’m Mexican American= Both my parents are Mexican & I was born in Mexico, but raised in  Souther California.)

The Blog’s name( MegaSUPER CHIDO Y+) means: Super cool & then some =)
