How we talk
Diccionario cordobés 4.0

 A couple of phrases  that are part of songs and popular Cordovan vocabulary  . A couple of phrases that show that, in the country of Argentina, everyone speaks  their own language . And what art! The Cordovan language  par excellence has particular phrases and conjugations that make it special. In this selection, we tell you  why of  these phenomena that characterize  the Cordoba parla  . And we revealed meanings you  didn't even have there .

1. What is there

Because we settle for little, not for conformists or mediocre, but  for copados .  “ É lo qui hay”  is a phrase that, in addition to being one of the most repeated, reflects the  idiosyncrasy of Cordoba . And why not Argentina. So, if there is little, we still  accept with good will . This phrase is so rooted in our  everyday dictionary  that there is even  a quartet band  with this name.

2. If I loved you i ite

 “ If I loved you i ite, but I don't revenge with so much shake,”  says  a quartettheme   of La Banda de Carlitos or the LBC. It is like this: this phrase represents the  “cut la bocha”  of the porteños. Because in addition to being  funny and nice , we also have our  spicy phrases . And, like everyone else, we don't like having us  around. 

3. Neither duns

It's  denial par excellence.  It means nothing or at all. It serves to  emphasize a phrase of negative connotation.   “ There's not even a lot in the fridge,” “I don't like it or dost the way you treated me.”  The Cordobese use  several phrases  with eschatological senses, and  that's what there is. 

4. Neither trunk e' ball

This phrase  replaces the verb ignore.  On Cordobeses cell phones, when they call you, you don't see “accept or reject call.” You see  “vevo or no e'bola trunk.”  That's  how we managed in    Cordobaland  .  If someone comes and tells you that they  didn't give him a trunk e' ball,  it means they didn't pay him a little attention. I mean, it failed  and all wrong. 

5. And yes son

This phrase  is the favorite auction of Johny  de Córdoba who taught us to make the  moñito noodle stew.  But it is also the headline of all Cordobeses. In order not to remain quiet, affirm the expression we have just spoken or show that there is an agreement in the conversation the  “and if son” is  the magic card.  Just do it: it goes with a particular amount.

6. According to vó

 The big phrase  to stop some  ballasero out there. When the one who is talking to you is telling you  a lot of chamuyo, the perfect r emate  is the “according to go”.This expression serves to give reason, but with sarcasm. I mean, to tell the recipient that  “na' you see”  what he's saying. This  “according to vo”  basically cites the bibliographic source from which information was extracted.  If someone throws a wrong data, you say “according to go”  and chau pichu.  

 The Leo is going to wash my car today. 

 ( The Leo responds): According to vó 

There is another example in doubt:

 The quarantine is going to end tomorrow 

 According to vó, son 

Is it understood? Or don't you dawl?

7. Not if you go...

Although it may seem French, it is Cordovan, this is a replica that attempts to  highlight the recipient's ignorance . With dyes of  irony and a hint of humor,  this finisher always gives to think, as it leaves in evidence that some comment was ignorant or redundant.There is a popular joke that serves to understand this expression. He says there was a skinny guy leaning on a pole  at the bus stop . In that comes a man and asks him: “Are you waiting for bondi?“, to which the skinny man answers:  “No, if he is holding him again, so he does not fall. “
