Description

Chile is known for having created an enormous amount of distinct words and expressions. Consequently, the Spanish spoken in Chile is frequently indiscernible to gringos and native Spanish speakers alike. This dictionary and phrasebook collects over 1,500 of these terms and idioms, knows and 'chilenismos', and expresses them in simple English. The book also explores the roots of chilenismos and explains the grammatical constructions and idiosyncratic speech patterns particular to Chileans. This is an ideal guide for tourists, businesspeople, and anyone who plans to spend time or to live in Chile. It is also a valuable tool for the Chilean expatriate, who can be transported back to his home country and reminded of how rich and entertaining chilenismos are.
