The BF learn-a-new-language thread

Postby PunkCapitalist » Tue Sep 01, 2015 5:14 pm

"Marico". Marico is the most powerful and -arguably- important word in the Venezuelan Spanish language. Its power comes from its incredible versatility (not even Alaba can be used in so many widely different ways). It literally means "gay" in a derogatory way but, depending on context, it may mean:

- Dude. IE: ¿Marico, que más? (Dude, whats up?). Not at all derogatory, but actually friendly. Most common word in Venezuela.
- Coward: ¿Ayyy, te vas a mariquear? (Ohhh, you're gonna be coward about it?)
- Boring: El marico ese me dejó embarcado (That boring dude left me hanging)
- Anything you dont like: ¿Que mariquera es esa de pagar 80 millones de euros por Martial? ( hard to translate literally, but: How could they pay 80m for Martial?!?!)
- Something insignificant: Se me olvidó apagar la luz, pero es una mariquera (I forgot to turn off the light, but it's really unimportant).
- Gay: Si te gustan los hombres, eres marico (if you like men, you're gay).

so Marico in Maltese: Pufta.
dak pufta...! It means gay but we use it to someone who is not a man of his word.

Question: I used to play on a team with a bunch of Argentinians and a couple Mexicans. I was wondering if the terms "flacco" and "cholo" had different connotations in Argentinian and Mexican Spanish. I know flacco was skinny but the Argentines always called me that when I wasn't any skinnier than they were. And the Mexicans liked to call themselves cholos but the Argentines just laughed.

Any explanations?

Flaco (single c btw, spanish doesn't use double c the way italian does) means skinny but I believe that's the Argentinian "dude" too. I don't think Mexicans use it that way.

Cholo denotes someone of "latinoamerican indigenous" heritage. Depending on the country, racism and other factors it might be derogative, but it may also be used as a "dude" word. Argentinians most likely find it derogative but Mexicans don't, although I haven't spent enough time with either to be entirely sure.

Cool. Yeah it seemed like the Argentines thought the Mexican guys on the team were making fun of themselves.

Cool how "marico" is so versatile. I want to add it to my vocabulary now, but I'm still too afraid to accidentally offend someone! On one hand you question how a word with negative connotations can be used to address someone positively, then I remember we do the same in English. So long as you place the word in the proper location ;)

Edit: I'd add pufta but I'm afraid the significance would be rather lost here :P

Yes, other Spanish speakers might be offended. Afaik, only Venezuelans and I think Colombians (marica, in femenine) use it in a friendly manner.

If you wish to swear God and send someone in the mother's cunt, listen to this guy. I guess the best thing is to learn people all the curses on Croatian/Serbian. The best thing in this video he doesn't sound as a native speaker and that specially makes me laugh. :lol: :lol: :lol:

Liba ... means - sperm
we use it against someone who is nasty, or to someone who did something very bad to you.

Yes you are right . That is the proper word.
Now I want to see translation of the word Liba in your languages.

Sperm - sperma

Thought this was more common, but "salt" or "being salty" is English slang for being bitter about something. Maybe from the salt in someone's tears.

Fun fact: Where I live, describing someone as "salty" can also mean that person has a ton of experience, or is super old. Comes from salt accumulation from the sea. Those kinds of people are too salty to know the new definition of salty. :wink: So it can also be a compliment if used in the right context.
