Sanjuaninos have a way of speaking that is very pleasant to the ear and are easily recognized not only for their toning , but also by the words and idioms they use. In San Juan some of the words that many know have another meaning.
Each region of Argentina has its peculiarities in its speech, many of them given by its geography, its people and even its proximity to other countries. This is the case, for example, in many northern or Cuyo provinces, which adopt or transform words from Chile or Bolivia and make them own.
It should be noted that, in the case of the province of sun and wine, many of the words come from Chile or some shared with the Cuyo region and neighbouring provinces. Others are specifically “sanjua” , and these serve to identify the tonada and idioms of the natives of San Juan who, in addition to their words, are characterized by their sense of humor and warmth.
'I'm going to light you': I'm going to give you some advice.
'You did it in waste': uselessly.
'They made him a buraco': an injury, especially in the economic.
'He threw him coal': encourage to influence badly.
'It's a charter': he has no sexual experience.
'He left a little asset': minimum rest in a glass.
'He's joking': flaunting.
'He is a sparrow (gulled) ': his partner deceives him.
'Are you baking? '- poking your nose with your finger.
There are so many local and San Juan forms of expression that a blogger decided and produced a dictionary with expressions only from the province. If you plan to travel to know her, what better than learning its language and customs through speech. Rich, the author of the sanjuanino dictionary, presents it as “the largest collection of Sanjuanino words and phrases online”.
If you want to continue knowing the more than 100 words and idioms sanjuanino, you can go to the sanjuanino dictionary blog.
