Margaret from Cachando Chile and some other gringas have been having some fun with the Spanish that is spoken in Chile. They even got some media attention when a journalist from a Santiago newpaper interviewed a few of them and wrote a story about it.
The game consists of translating some of the common slang expressions directly, word for word, without taking meaning into consideration. It's hilarious and great fun. I am something of a language nerd so I couldn't pass up something this entertaining. I fabricated a little story using as much slang as possible that Margaret has been gracious enough to post on her site.
Most of it is in English (but I'll warn you: there is also some nonsense in English and some non-standard Spanish).
It is my first "guest post" of sorts. You can read it here
