Spanish Word of the Day
Wednesday, September 17, 2014
nick noun: username
  • Spanish has borrowed many words from English, just as English has borrowed many from Spanish. Sometimes Spanish changes the spelling of the English to reflect how Spanish-speakers pronounce words:
    un cóctel a cocktail
    un eslogan a slogan
  • Sometimes Spanish takes elements of English and makes them into words that don’t exist in English. For example, el footing is jogging. Similarly, el nick is a shortened version of nickname, and refers to your nickname, or user ID on internet sites.
    un cóctel a cocktail
    un eslogan a slogan
    Los usuarios se conocen y se interpelan mediante el nick. Users know each other and communicate using their nicknames.
