Spanglish is spoken near the border in Texas a lot i hear, where some are under the mistaken impression they speak Spanish :) Some of the examples i've heard: - Puche los breques - push the brakes - Guacha el carro - wash the car - Va a la groceria - go to the grocery store My Spanish professor from Spain is particularly amused at "Groceria" __________________________ Communication is not just words, communication is...architecture because of course it is quite obvious that the house that would be built without that desire, that desire to communicate, would not look as your house does today.
