cibernauta noun: internet user
  • Both Spanish and English share many words derived from Greek or Latin. In the case of el cibernauta, however, while the word cybernaut exists in English, it is not very common, and has a slightly different meaning from the Spanish. Cibernauta is the basic word for anybody who is an internet user, whether proficient or otherwise:
    los cibernautas de todo el mundo Internet users all round the world
  • But a cybernaut in English tends to be somebody who is particularly clued-up about the internet. Cibernauta is formed on the model of astronauta, astronaut.
    los cibernautas de todo el mundo Internet users all round the world
