Exploring Language(s) – Video 06 out now!

The new ‘Exploring Language(s)’ video is out now! This time I dealt with Lunfardo, a rich slang which represents an integral part of the Rioplatense variety of Spanish. It includes words derived from many different languages and dialect, due to the massive immigration from Europe (and, to a much lesser extent, Asia Minor) which took place in the second half of the 19th and the first half of the 20th.
