Mexican slang, by its very nature, is often used to accurately portray the human condition: our foibles, habits, physiology, sexuality, ugliness or beauty, weaknesses, and official capacity - along with all the demons that are contained in the Pandora's Box of human character. In this book, you will discover- * What lovers say to one another * How to swear convincingly * What it means to be simpatico * What a "masacuota" is * Names for forbidden substances * How to flirt with panache * How not to order your waiter's testicles for breakfast!!! And much, much more. This handy publication will guide you through the labyrinth of Mexican slang: allow your efforts in Spanish to be expressive and colorful - as the Mexicans are - while instructing you in the pitfalls and dangers of being too gauche, or too insulting. This book will be a companion for all students of the language; travelers to Mexico or those contemplating living there. It can help translators, teachers, students and journalists speaking or writing in Mexico, and any Spanish speaking country - much of the slang heard in Mexico is used in Spain and throughout the Americas. As well as instruct, we hope "Say it like a Mexican" will also entertain you and allow a few bawdy laughs at these pithy "modismos, which march in their hundreds through the pages. * Text hot as a habenero!
