“You talk about Cordoba. Registration, conflicts and projections” is a project of the National University of Cordoba and the Faculty of Languages . In this paper, students of the Spanish language devoted themselves to collecting phrases, sayings and phenomena of all kinds in the talks of this Mediterranean province . The results were striking and functioned as a clear demonstration of the diversity that inhabits the province. Although the people interviewed belonged to the towns of Villa del Rosario, Cura Brochero, Villa de Tulumba, Huinca Renancó and Marcos Juárez, the diversity extends throughout the Argentine territory and is reflected in our ways of speaking. Having a record of this is very enriching.
Among the expressions most used in these areas, the following were found:
This phrase is related to the idea of cause and effect. He wants to say that in order for a problem to disappear, the factor that causes it must be eliminated. This saying invites you to cut conflicts at the root . This popular saying has rabies as a central element since it is an incurable disease that affects dogs generating aggressive behavior in them. Rabies can be transmitted to humans by a bite of an infected dog and has no cure. That's right, because it presents a serious threat, when a dog is infected, it is sacrificed to stop the spread of the diagnosis. That is where the saying is born, and towards the world it spreads ...
This saying alludes to the union of two or more people who have the same vices , rationing or defects.It is also often used to talk about the coincidence of two or more circumstances , which are similar or aggravating.
It is a very famous and popular proverb. It means that when receiving a gift, an attitude of satisfaction, joy and gratitude should be shown , regardless of whether it is to our liking or not. It is a kind of moral that teaches not to look for defects in the gifts they give us.
Origin refers to the field of equines. Because, through the state of the teeth of animals, you can determine the age and their state of health. At the age of two, the horses change their teeth and they are born teeth of yellowish color.With the passing of the years, they begin to wear out. So, looking at a horse's teeth is doing a check to see what condition it is in.
Another variant is that of “the dead man is afraid of the throat”. This saying is used to describe a person who is shocked about another's situation, not realising that she herself is in a similar or worse situation.
Scabies is a contagious condition that directly affects the skin, causing burning and itching. This condition is very annoying and the phrase is used to refer to all those things that are in principle annoying , but that the benefits they carry behind are favorable or interesting to us. Because a nuisance, if we find it pleasing, ceases to be a nuisance.
And you... do you use any of these phrases?
