Today, it’s Spanish Swear Words time! And I’m not just talking about the Pajero car which is sold in English speaking territories, because pajero is a Spanish Swear Word!
But if you want to learn ‘proper Spanish’ check out..
Inevitably, when you start learning a new language, you’re going to start speaking the slang or expletive expressions because that’s what the locals do! I think some of the first Spanish words I learnt were slang, thanks to some friends from Barcelona that I met in Africa.
So what are some of the best Spanish Swear Words and Curses?
Triple-hijueputa – Three times motherf&*ker.
Pelotudo – You have big balls (testicles) but in a dumb way
Perro – Dog. Often used as “Perro hijueputa”
Polla – Female chicken, also penis
Gonorrea – A really mean person, also is a sexually transmitted disease
Uy, que care-chimba – Hey, penis face.
Me cago en la leche! – I s&*t in the milk! (means something like “s&*t, i’ve have bad luck”)
Yo cago en la leche de tu puta madre– I s&*t in your whore mother’s milk
Tu hermano no tiene la ingle – Your brother has no groin
Cagaste y saltaste en la caca – You s&*t and jumped in it
They were more than happy to educate me with a tonne of Spanish swear words and curses. Actually, the words of any new language you learn are probably going to be expletives (see some Russian Swear Words for examples!)
I mean, many people don’t speak proper English, and communicate in a series of slang words, sentences, or even whole conversations!
And Spanish is no different!
Spanish is a very expressive language and I think it reflects the people that use it as their first language.
Like English, Spanish has morphed into different sorts of slang because it’s been exported all over the world, thanks to the Spanish Empire (check out some funny Spanish Translations from Colombia here!).
Of course, Spanish then mixes with the native languages and out comes something new!
So here you go, here are some Spanish Swear Words, Curses, Slang, and Expletives that range from not too bad to downright offensive!
If you don’t like swearing, stop reading now!
A silly, not so definitive list of Spanish Swear Words, Curses, Slang and Expletives!
