Lingüística

El español rioplatense o castellano rioplatense es una variedad dialectal del español hablada en Argentina y en Uruguay. Su uso se extiende en la zona de la cuenca del Río de la Plata, en Argentina y Uruguay, y otras regiones aledañas.

(E) Voseo: the usage of the pronoun vos for the second person singular, instead of tú. In other Spanish-speaking regions where voseo is used, it is typically considered a nonstandard lower-class sociolectic or regional variant; whereas in Argentina, voseo is standard.

Intonation that resemble that of Italian dialects, stemming from the linguistic influence of the huge numbers of Italian settlers since the 19th century.

Lunfardo: The Lunfardo is a slang originated and developed in the lower classes in and around Buenos Aires. Lunfardo (or briefly,lunfa) appeared during the second half of the nineteenth century with the great contribution of the various immigration, especially the Italian, and words from American-Indian, African and gaucho origin which had already existed in Argentina.

Examples:

  • fiaca - laziness, or lazy person (from the Italian fiacco "weak")
  • guita - money
  • pibe - like "kid", a common term for boy or, in more recent times, for young man
  • morfar - to eat (from French argot morfer "to eat")
