Chilenismos I

Posted at 7:38 am under Uncategorized

A partir de esta semana, publicaré una serie de frases y expresiones que comúnmente se utilizan en Chile. Frases basadas en palabras que literalmente significan algo completamente distinto a lo que se refieren y por lo mismo, una persona que conoce el significado de la palabra basado en un diccionario no entendería a lo que se refiere. Comencé con quince expresiones que utilizan una palabra. La idea es que también puedan conocer y aprender a utilizar WordChamp, una impresionante herramienta en línea que tenemos disponible no solo para los que estudian español, sino que también para todos los otros idiomas.

Starting this week, I will publish a series of phrases and expressions that are commonly use in Chile. These phrases are based on words that literally mean something completely different, and they’re used out of context. Someone who knows what the dictionary definition of the word is and sees it in a Chilean context would be utterly lost. I started with fifteen expressions that are based upon one word in Spanish. The purpose of this post is for you to learn and discover more about WordChamp, an amazing online tool that is quite helpful for those who are learning Spanish, and to be honest, every language.
