Palabras Españoles de la Semana / Spanish Words of the Week (CW5)

Calendar Week 5, 2011:
This week I heard a lot of mexican slang – but (un)fortunately I forgot most of it …

español english
 la tubería  the pipeline
 el recurso  the input (data)
 la duda  the doubt
 bajuntar  to join, to put together
 el chicle  the chewing gum
 ¿Qué pedo? [mex. slang] What’s up? (literally: Why fart?)
 el alcance  the meaning, the impact

 

Every third word that I hear from certain colleagues has either to do with “chingar” or “pinche“.

A term that I hear quite often from persons stuck in traffic jam is: “pinche puto” – but this term should be used with caution😉
