Does Spanish spoken in Spain sound different to Spanish spoken in Latin American countries in the same way that British English sounds different to American English?

In the same way that British English sounds different to American English (in regards to slang, pronounciation of some words etc), is there a similar trend in South America (barring Brazil of course)? Is it more noticeable than British vs American English, about the same, or less so?

Uruguay is the Latin American country with the best democracy. It is stable and there's no political uncertainty. However, it still doesn't attract as much investment as it should. What could be the reasons for this situation?

Uruguay is kind of an outlier in Latin America: solid democracy, low corruption (by regional standards) and stability. These characteristics should make Uruguay the country where all companies would like to invest. This is not the case. What could be the reasons for this?

I have a few theories and I would like Uruguayans to let me know what they think about them:

  1. Regional factor (being located between countries that are unstable comes at a price)

  2. Small internal market

  3. High taxes (even though there are some special zones)

  4. Economy dedicated to agriculture and food exports

What could other reasons be?

What's the deal with Argentina? Is it doing better or worse than the average Latin American country in terms of quality of life?

As a Brazilian, I just find Argentina to be fascinating tbh. You guys manage to have one of the highest HDI in the region, in fact it still is the highest in the region when you adjust it by inequality. But at the same time, Argentina has one of the world's highest inflation rates and I keep hearing about how poverty keeps increasing and affects about half the country. Argentina has also has one of the lowest murder rates in the region, the second lowest in South America, after Chile(If I recall correctly), and you guys still manage to have the third highest GDP per capita(PPP) in South America, despite all the economic issues.

So, what's the deal with Argentina? Does the Argentine government measure poverty differently than other Latin American countries? Is the quality of life in Argentina still one of the highest in the region or is it really bad as some Argentinians claim it to be? Tbf, Argentina seems to have better social indicators than much of Latin America, with the exception of the inflation and poverty rates.

Edit: Wow, thanks for all the comments, there are a lot of great insights here!

What are some things, that makes you say "thank god, I live in Latin America"?

We often complain of how screwed our countries are for many things (corrupt politicians, organized crime, etc) what about the good things?

I will start, while not exclusive to LATAM, I am grateful we have secularism and birthright citizenship. It avoids unnecessary problems. Thanks to that laws like the Bumiputra rights of Malaysia or stateless Palestinians refugees that never receive citizenship even if they have been living for generations in the middle east never happen in LATAM.

How many of you AC fans/players out there didn’t realize β€œRequiescat/as/ant in pace” is actually Latin?

I was just reading a post here with questions about AC Origins and the guy/gal asked β€œWhy does Aya say β€œrequiescat in pace”? She is Greek/Egyptian so why is she talking in Italian?” and some guy/gal in the comments answered something like β€œnever mind: it’s just a callback to the Ezio games”... I mean. It just blew my mind! Because as an actual Italian AC fan, I never really considered there might be people out there thinking β€œrequiescat in pace” is Italian and not Latin! I don’t wanna make fun of anybody, I’m just curious: how many of you thought that was an Italian expression? Also, if you think about it, that scene with Aya using that particular sentence... is a very powerful moment! Basically, they are showing us the first instance in which that phrasing was used by the Hidden Ones/Assassins! If you really thought it was just a cheeky random callback to Ezio because she is in Italy and whatnot... you were missing on a pretty powerful moment from a lore building prospective!

EDIT: oh my God! My first post on this sub and it sparked so many beautiful conversations! Thank you all so much! ❀️

The murder rate statistics for Latin America and the Caribbean for 2020 are out and there were some big surprises. The general trend is that Latin America is becoming safer. What do you think?

Source - Spanish

Source - English

I had heard crime was decreasing in Venezuela. It seems it is partially true. A lot of people state it is because of the high number of people who have left the country. Sad place for Jamaica, however I think they have had higher murder rates in past years and it seems that what happened is that most countries are decreasing their rates even more. Crime in Honduras seems to have stabilized. I knew crime had decreased in El Salvador, but a murder rate of 19.7/100,000 is really low, I am not a fan of Nayib's but he has done a lot to improve the security situation. I was even more surprised (and happy) about Guatemala. Sadly, this means that Mexico is more violent than Central America now, even though it seems murders stabilized in 2020 (It also caught my attention that 15% of murders were committed in one state: Guanajuato). It is the first time in more than three decades that Brazil has a murder rate lower than 20/100,000, it also seems crime decreased in Rio de Janeiro (A lot of people say Bolsonaro has nothing to do with this, but if it were the opposite they would be blaming him). Panama and Costa Rica seem stable while Uruguay has improved after two difficult years. Ecuador and Peru seem to have increased their rates a little bit in the last few years while Argentina has improved a bit.

After analyzing this report it is more than clear to me what without the stupid War on Drugs we would have a way more peaceful region.

The Legion's knowledge of Latin

I've seen many people assume that most Legion soldiers don't even know much Latin besides a few words and phrases that they don't know the mean

I believe this to be untrue due to the fact Edward Swallow's is both an anthropologist and linguist (His original mission from the Followers was to record Tribal language's and customs) and his goal is to create "a single homogenous cultural identity" and how better to do that than to use language which is correlated strongly to a sense of identity and belonging and Latin relatively speaking isn't a terribly hard language to learn. So giving the legion Latin as its own language is a good way of giving them a distinguished identity from "profligates". You also only ever see the Legion and how it operates from the point of view of an outsider and never quite see how Legion soldier interact with each other on a Personal level.

We need proof to suggest this theory though and proof I shall lay out what I think constitutes somewhat adequate or cursory proof of this theory.

First of all the Legion have the Latin phrases Pax Per Bellum printed on an Aureus and Magnum chasma printed on a Denarius but this doesn't really prove much since there is Latin also on the US dollar.

A failed speech check with Canyon Runner when trying to get a discount on slaves.

[Below 50 Speech] Courier: "But the girl is sick. With classic symptoms of Vagina Dentata"

Canyon Runner: "I think my Latin is better than yours and I expected the captures myself and there was no Dentata."

---

If the player character chooses the Intelligence option to pose as an agent of the Legion in the quest Silus Treatment, a few Latin phrases will appear in the dialogue choices.

"Timeo Danaos et dona ferentes"

"Corruptio optimi pessima"

"Legum servi sumus"

Each of these phrases have their own individual meaning and I feel this suggests that that he has an understanding of what the Courier is saying.

There are two interpretations we can make of this one of them being that Latin is used by the Legion as a second language.

Another is that Latin is a language solely used among high ranking officials in the Legion like Greek was used by many historical Roman Elite seeing as how Silus is a Centurion and I believe Canyon Runner to be a Legion Veteran.

If anyone else has anything to add to this Discussion please let me know.
