An influencer from San Juan teaches his followers a “Basic Course to Speak Like Sanjuanino”. @mauri .nzc videos have thousands of interactions on their Instagram account and quickly become viralized within the minutes you upload them to this platform. In one of them, he presents words and exemplifies them with their respective meanings. Thanks to these videos, we tell you the Argentine sayings that the inhabitants of that place use most along with the words they use in their daily speech.
Yarco or yarca - a disqualifying adjective used to refer to a person who, according to whom he says, is badly dressed or speaks badly. For example: “What a bow, what a bad thing that came to be dressed! “or “What a yarca, how bad he speaks! “.
Choco : the sanjuanino does not say “how nice the dog”, but says “how nice the choco or pussy”.
Meek or meek: a qualifying adjective to say that something is rich, good, incredible, surprising, etc. San Juan says: “He has a meek house, a meek car, even the woman is re meek,” says the influencer in his video.
Won : This word is widely used by Sanjuaninos in their everyday speech and also refers to the word “guevón”, this word is used in any phrase, for example when a friend tells another about a gossip and this one says, “Really, won? Nah won, I don't believe you,” or “Nah, I don't believe you, gevon.”
Cachito : the sanjuanino does not say “wait me a little while,” he says “wait a little bit”, or also, when they want to say something decreases, for example: “Mauricio, lower a little bit to music ! “.
Julepe : the sanjuanino does not say “I scared,” he says “I hit a julepe.”
Pillar : San Juan's don't say “I'm going to catch you,” but they say “I'm going to catch you.” It should be noted that, the letter “ll” is pronounced as “i” then it would sound “I'm going to piiar”.
Tuna : the sanjuanino does not say “what a tremendous tail that girl has,” but says “what a tremendous pint that girl has.” Also this word is replaced by “bun”: “what a tremendous bun that girl has.”
Juira : to say “out of here” to a dog if he approached him unexpectedly and frightened him to the sanjuanino.
Guevon : the Sanjuanino does not say “fool,” says “guevon.”
Pechar : in San Juan they do not say “push”, but “pechar”.
Caiate : As we mentioned above, the Sanjuaninos to the “ll” replace it with the “i” when they express themselves, so they do not say “shut up”, but “caiate”.
In the phonetics of sanjuanino several vowels are added to the words, for example they say, neeeeño, naaaaada que veeeeeer .
A heat is making : it is one of the most used phrases in the summer season.
Noo pa that : they mean, for example, “no, why will I go to buy if the kiosk is closed! “.
Haasta where he bells put him: When a sanjuanino tells the friend how far he wants a drink to be served in his glass.
Even the crap: those who live in San Juan don't say “he's drunk,” they say “he's up to the crap.”
Iaa said aaa: A widely used expression when the Sanjuanino listens to something that he does not think is true.
And said : expression that means “I said.”
Finally, those of San Juan, when they speak, drag the rr, in many of their words and to the “s” they do not pronounce them, directly that letter does not exist for them.
These were some Argentine sayings and words used daily by the inhabitants of San Juan, if we missed any, do not hesitate to tell us, so we made a more extensive list and know them so that, once we visit the province of San Juan, we can understand ourselves a little better and, who tells you, we we get used to and go back to that meek province that many like so much.
