MI HAMACA

(my hammock)

I remember the sweet dreams I had in many of these.

You can have them in many patterns, with many colors and designs.

This one is very detailed and very special.

It has my country’s flag and my country’s name.

I can vouch for them.

They are incredibly comfortable.

Memories!

La hamaca es un objeto usado para dormir o descansar.

Consiste en una lona o red constituida por bramante o cuerda fina que se fija a dos puntos firmes.

A hammock is an object used for sleeping or resting.

It’s made of a mesh made with fine string which is attached to two fixed spots.

The origin of the word “hamaca” comes from the language of the Taínos.

~Wikipedia~

redlineb

Type of hanging bed, 1650’s, alteration of hamack, hamaca (1550’s), from Spanish hamaca, from Arawakan (Haiti) word apparently meaning “fish nets” (compare Yukuna hamaca, Taino amaca).

The forms of the word in Dutch (hangmat) and German (Hangmatte) were altered by folk-etymology as if it meant “hang-mat.”

A Puerto Rican Moment …. “It Happens …. Got Spanish?”!!

THE IMPORTANCE OF SPANISH IN THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE

I have to keep this post in Spanish.

There’s no way that it would make sense in translation.

Basically it’s stating all the Spanish words that have made their way into the English vernacular.

However, if you look at the list of words, you may be able to understand.

These are Spanish words which are almost daily use in an English conversation.

Hope you can decipher and enjoy.

Try using the Google translator app.

LA IMPORTANCIA DE NUESTRO IDIOMA 
EN ESTADOS UNIDOS DE AMÉRICA

HASTA LA VISTA, BABY!

¿HISPANISMOS?

Sé que si estoy hablando español y utilizo alguna palabra en inglés, a eso le dicen “ANGLICISMOS”.

PERO si un gringo esta hablando inglés y utiliza alguna palabra en español …… ¿COMO SE LE LLAMA A ESO?

No sé, aqui le llamaremos “HISPANISMOS”.

Parece que los “HISPANISMOS” están de moda en EE.UU., su avance es imparable. En la TV de ese país se presentó una investigación del idioma inglés que HOY hablan los estadounidenses. Ha sido nutrido por palabras y expresiones del francés, alemán, italiano, chino, etc. PERO cuando van a revelar las influencias de nuestro idioma, dicen: “INCLUDING THE ONE FOREIGN LANGUAGE YOU PROBABLY SPEAK MORE THAN ANY OTHER: SPANISH” (“incluyendo la lengua extranjera que probablemente tu hablas más que ninguna otra: ESPAÑOL”).

HISPANISMOS QUE USAN LOS GRINGOS EN SU DIARIO VIVIR

brisa (breeze)……………….búfalo (buffalo)
café…………………………..cafetería
cañón (canyon)……………..chupacabras
coyote………………………..queso
embargo……………………..fiesta
guerrilla………………………lazo (lasso)
macho………………………..mosquito
mulato………………………..negro
patio…………………………..piñata
piña colada…………………..plaza
pronto…………………………puma (cougar)
rancho………………………..salsa
sierra…………………………siesta
tabaco……………….……….tornado
viva…………………….……..vigilante
casanova…………………………cojones

EL ESPAÑOL, EL IDIOMA EXTRANJERO QUE MÁS HA ENRIQUECIDO EL INGLÉS DE LOS EE.UU.

SPANISH IS THE FOREIGN LANGUAGE WHICH HAS MOST ENRICHED THE LANGUAGE OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.

 A PROUD PEOPLE

The quote below describes us all.

We are proud of our heritage and our ancestry.

We are a proud people.

“I am not African.
Africa is in me, but I cannot return.
I am not Taina.
Taino is in me, but there is no way back.
I am European.
Europe lives in me, but I have no home there.

I am new. History made me. My first language is Spanglish.
I was born at the crossroads
and I am whole.”
