Puerto Rican slang words and phrases

List of Puerto Rican slang words and phrases

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

This article is a summary of common slang words and phrases used in Puerto Rico. Puerto Rican Spanish differs greatly from other dialects of Spanish because of the island's status as a commonwealth of the United States, which adds sizable English influences to the language. Puerto Ricans often use anglicisms and words made directly from English; for example, "janguiar" means "to hang out". Also notable is the spelling of words, Puerto Ricans often leave "D" sounds out of words, for instance the word "arrancado" (ripped out) is commonly spelled "arrancao". Idiomatic expressions may be difficult to translate fully, so the English translations may not reflect the full meaning of the expression they intend to translate.
