We Cordobeses have an inexhaustible creativity . Which is not only reflected in our sense of humor, but also in our way of speaking. Therefore, we approach you the definition of 5 verbs that, if you don't know them, you risk being donated. These are expressions that we use without realizing that they can't understand us. Since they are part of the Cordovan code , these verbs are common in the colloquial register.
It is a term of the lunfardo that almost all Argentines use . But in Cordoba a lot is used. To make someone angry, you can say, “Who did you go to juna a vo?”. Or, if there's something you don't have a clue about, you can say, “I don't even get it together.” Junar means looking, but we use it more as a synonym of knowing or knowing.
The mutinar verb is our favorite. We love to mutinate, face, handle. Rooting is the expression we use when we're in one. When we are anxious and eager for a situation to happen, for example.
3. Give it the cane
Chordobese buchones do not buchonean, they give the cane . It's a verb with a negative connotation. It means betting someone, either with the police or friends. It's the verb that says you told a secret. To be a good friend in Cordoba, you never have to give the hair to someone.
4. Eating your snot
That's what we do in the quarantine , basically. Eat our snot. Tell yourself about the situation in which you are bored, donated or given away. You don't know what to do , then you eat your snot.
5. Getting face/being donated
To be on your face, regalau or donau means to be hung. Without understanding. We made the explanation of all these verbs so that you won't stand up in any conversation. I mean, so you can understand everything and don't eat your snot. So you can chat in Cordovan and you won't be donated. Tamos?
