Não é verdade, posso tentar conversar contigo em espanhol mas a minha deficiencia em sua lingua é o que não me permite.

Sinceramente creio que tem uma grande chance que voce tem julgado as pessoas erradamente.

Voce pode me accusar de não ter muito nocão sobre a vida Mexicana mas tem pocas pessoas neste mundo que tem a sabedoria de fbaezer e ele mora em Mexico.

Novamente, quero diser que a sua accusacão não cabe para algumas pessoas aqui dentro.

BUENO LO QUE A MI ME DA BRONCA ES QUE ESTAN HABLANDO DE ARGENTINA SIN CONOCER A LA GENTE , ME PARECE TOTALMENTE IGNORANTE LO QUE DICEN, NO POR ESCUCHAR A UNAS PERSONAS HABLAR HAY QUE SACAR DEDUCCIONES QUE "NO TIENEN SENTIDO"

Mayra, fbaezer era diciéndonos lo que ALGUNA OTRA dice gente... No pienso que es su propia opinión. (la esperanza de I esto es comprensible, yo está utilizando el traductor del altavista.) (recepción a A2K!)

mayra,

Tenho pouco conhecimento da Argentina. Isto e verdade. Morei em Brasil muitos anos e, como voce deve esta cienté, as duas nacãos tem uma rivalidade formidavel.

Mas creio que ainda temos um opinião valida.

O que tenho dito aqui e que Argentina tem sido nacão de grandes glorias e a queda da infrastructura tem sido difficil para a nacão, uma vez orgulhosa, a engolir.

Tembem tem dito que Argentina é, das naões da America Latina, o pais de o maior influencia da Europa.

Com isto tem alguma mal-entendimento?

Outra coisa, não tem o menor intencão de te dar uma bronca. Ah, talvez uma, e uma pena que vocez não ganhou a copa, estava torcendo. Argentina merece uma dose de felicidade nestes tempos defficies.

Querida Mayra:

Mi experiencia con Argentina parte, no sólo de la lectura cotidiana de noticias y periódicos, sino de la amistad, en ocasiones profunda, que he tenido con argentinos.

Admiro la cultura argentina, de Borges a Fito Páez, de Lugones a Atahualpa Yupanqui, de Cortázar a Les Luthiers (voy a un concierto el sábado). Pero todos tenemos el derecho de criticar.

Los chistes de argentinos son comunes en América Latina. Pica en Google "chistes de argentinos" y te encontrarás centenares de páginas.

Que fueron grandes y que pueden serlo, ni quien lo dude. Que tienen serios problemas, tampoco nadie lo duda. Que más les vale darse cuenta de que son latinoamericanos y no "europeos trasterrados", bueno, esa es una opinión de muchos analistas que yo comparto.

¿Tener envidia de Argentina? ¡Por favor! Decenas de miles de argentinos se refugiaron en México durante la dictadura militar, y hoy en día otras decenas de miles están aquí por la situación económica de su tierra (y porque no pueden estar en Miami, que es donde quisieran).

A2K no es uno de esos lugares de chat en los que la gente se mienta la madre a partir de la nacionalidad. Aquí se discuten las cosas. Por lo tanto, te exijo que, cuando vuelvas a escribir, lo hagas con razones.

Dear Mayra:

My experience with Argentina comes not only from the daily news and newspaper reading, but from the friendship, sometimes deep, I've had with Argentinians.

I admire Argentinian culture, from Borges to Fito Páez, from Lugones to Atahualpa Yupanqui, from Cortázar to Les Luthiers (I'm going to a concert next saturday). But we all have the right to critisize.

Argentinian jokes are common in all Latin America. Click on Google "chistes de argentinos" and you will find hundreds of pages.

That you were big and can be big again, no doubt. That you have serious problems, no doubt either. That you'd better realize that you are Latin Americans and not "exiled Europeans", well, that's the opinion of many analysts which I share.

To have envy of Argentina? Please! Tens of thousands of Argentinianas sought refuge in México during the military dictatorship, and today other tens of thousands are here because of the situation in their fatherland (and because they can't be in Miami, which is where they would want to be).

A2K is not one of those chat sites in which people curse to each other, according to their nationality. Things are discussed here. I hence demand you, for your next post, to write with reasons.

Setanta, sorry my response is long past your original post: "What is striking to me is the influx of Spanish speakers into central Ohio. I switched to a credit union for better rates and fees, and our credit union has never missed a trick with the Spanish speakers."

I want to congratulate you for joining a credit union. Everyone should try to qualify for credit union membership instead of only banks.

Another take on gringo - I read it evolved from the green coats the Americans were wearing: Green coat = gringo.

In 1986, right after I married mi Cubanita loca, we moved from Southeast Texas to the Panhandle region, about 800 miles away.

I did some volunteer work in the Plainview ISD for Junior Achievement, and the most significant thing I became aware of was that the percentage of Hispanic students in grades K-12 was already 50%.

Throughout the Southwest, Espanol has all but become necessary.

As Setanta has testified, it's going that way in the heartland.

Soy solamiente el gringo estupido, though, so what do I know? :wink:

Oh...yeah...tamales at Christmas are the bomb.

Once I was told that another slang for Gringo's was Gabacho which meant something like small green cabbage?

NPR had an interesting piece on this subject, indirectly, about the growth of Spanglish:

NPR's Morning Edition[/color]

You will need to scroll about two thirds of the way down the page to an "audio article" entitled: Spanglish, a new American language. There is an audio link there to hear the episode, which can be played on Windows media player or on Real Player . . .

(the main family christmas tradition -- my family being, like, totally gringo -- is piroshkis with a spicy tomato soup whose name i don't know. good leftovers. had all but forgotten about xmas tamales until a housemate in college started making them, and everything came flooding back.)

What a great thread this was. I enjoyed reading much of it over again - They lost me on the Spanish -

@edgarblythe,
I followed some of the spanish (I'm rezlly bad at understanding a lot of spoken spanish, better at reading, but I miss, ha, a number of the main words, thus getting the meaning entirely skewed.

I'm expecting to like it when a2k can be read in different languages, or if not that all of it can be read - I would think that would be hard - but that it would somehow support other languages. I may start having to subscribe to some online dictionaries and grammars.
