Spanglish

The best part about being Spanish and living in California is that everyone understands you, you get the most smiles out of people and you can understand everything people say.

I also like it when we Spanglish somewhere in the lines of ” those gringos they don’t entienden nada …dios mio , just good for carrying la compra “…..etc

One of the smoothest examples of the PERFECT use of Spanglish is in the track Mentirosa by Mellow Man Ace.  When I arrived in LA in 1989 this was playing everywhere. I guess it stuck with me forever.

 

 

There is also the Spanglish that the “yanitos ” speak . Llanito or yanito is Andalucian Spanish spoken by the people who live in Gibraltar click

It is a free form Andalucian Spanglish which is very familiar to me but can be pretty hilarious to listen to if you are not accustomed.

 

here is a very funny cooking class in yanito Spanglish

 

 

and then there is SOFIA VERGARA…she is in a category apart…language mangler, Spanglisher suprema. I watch Modern Family just to hear her  speak.
