need a lesson in regionalisms Jan 29, 2003

Both Mexican and Argentinian versions were almost completely unintelligible for me...although I could discern the meaning of the Mexican since I hear that typical sing-song all the time here. The *translation* into universal Spanish (was that Castillian?) saved me. You could write entire linguistic treatises on this. Thanks, it was entertaining!

That was fun! Jan 29, 2003

Although it would have helped to have Henry Hinds around for the Mexican stuff, and to be a few years younger for the Argentinian version!

Qué buena cosa los multimedios, no? O los multimedia? O...?

Not "Castillian" (what's "Castillian"?) Jan 29, 2003

I don\'t know what you call Castillian. In Argentina, when I was young(er), at elementary and at high school, language class was called \"Castellano\". If you mean by Castillian the \"Spaniard Spanish\", the answer is no. It was the so-called \"neutral Spanish\", more or less understandable everywhere. (An Spaniard would never say something like \"presencia líder\").

Best regards,
