spanglish? Apr 22, 2007

I guess u are asking about the term SPANGLISH? Could it be so?
In this case I shortly can explain that it is not actually a language. Its more like slang expressions used by Spanish speaking youngs. Most commonly these expressions are borrowed from English and brought quite directly into Spanish.
Here I give u some examples which i found in Wikipedia:

English Spanish Spanglish
meeting reunión mitin
to go shopping ir de compras chopin
vacuum cleaner aspiradora vacun cliner

If u know both these source languages u can easily detect these expressions as they jump out of the text as very "cool" ones

I had many doubts about SpanEnglish being an actual language. Thank you, you have cleared most of my doubts.
