Spanish Classes: Slang language (Lunfardo)

Lunfardo is the jargon originally used by the people who belonged to low social classes, normally in the city of Buenos Aires and its surroundings. It was made known by the rest of social classes and the rest of the country.

Another important aspect is the use of such words consciously. We know the word mujer (woman) exits, but sometimes we choose to use the word “mina” instead. Or it is also the case of the word dinero, we occasionally prefer to use the word “guita”. It is important to mention that tango and lunfardo were born during the same period and in the same place.

Along the years, lunfardo has been acquired by all social classes after the diffusion tango lyrics, theatre and certain popular journalism have provided to it.
