CMV: "Latin American" or "South American" is better than "Latino" or "Latinx"
  • It was shown recently in the surveys that "Latinx" is wildly unpopular. While I understand the desire to be gender neutral, I think that there can be a word that achieves both the neutrality while at the same time using a word that is largely considered to be difficult to pronounce and appears way too "out there".

  • "Latin American" might be two syllables and some may think it is too long, but then people often vocalize terms like like "Asian American", "African American", "LGBTQ+" without objection, and these have as many syllables.

  • At the same time, I suggest "South American" as well, since there are many peoples in the region who may like to identify as something other than "Hispanic" or "Latino". For example, there are indigenous peoples of America, German immigrants, and Japanese immigrants, who may speak Spanish or Portuguese but identify more with their ancestry than any Romance-speaking heritage. Also, there is Suriname, whose official language is Dutch. To encompass e

What do you feel you identify more with, being Latin American, whatever your nationality may be, or the local culture you live in? How do these intersect?

I was just wondering because in such a diverse area with many β€˜artificially’ created nations it seems like how one would view their identity is so different from much of the rest of the world, especially from my personal experience as someone from the U.S./Europe.

EDIT: Thanks so much for all the replies! I apologize that my phrasing of artificial seemed to diminish the legitimacy of any nation, it definitely wasn’t the right way to put it and I appreciate the comments teaching me otherwise. I definitely feel I have a better understanding of identity in Latin America now, thanks!

Played with a PGA Canada/Latin America player today who tied my club course record 62. Here’s what I gathered watching it happen.
  1. Trouble was never trouble to him. He hit it behind a tree on #16 leaving him 130 out, over hazard onto an elevated green. He got up with a 6 iron, hit a knockdown shot into the hill, two hopped on the green to 6 feet. Made the putt for birdie.

  2. His putting was great and then it was out of control good. He two putted from anywhere on the green for par. When the putter caught fire, he was unconscious.

  3. He hit driver like three times. 3w the rest of the course. He carried it around 270 down the pipe EVERY. SINGLE. TIME.

  4. He knew where to miss and played to that side on any tough hole.

  5. Up and down from anywhere. Hit it in the tall grass, hack it in the fairway bunker, stick it to 4 feet from 140y out, sink the putt. Miss the par 3 10 feet short, chip up to inches.

It really came down to getting a red hot putter and knowing what to do when he caught it. He could have easily just shot 69-71, but being a GREAT putter put him at 62 today. He missed the 15 foot eagle putt

How common is it to travel across Latin American countries by land?

Do most people often travel across Latin American countries by land or by air? Obviously the countries share giant borders, however looking at the geography of major cities...

... it seems like a lot of people might rather fly directly between hubs like Buenos Aires and Santiago, rather than driving through the Argentinian and Chilean borders - unless I'm severely underrating land crossings.

How common is it to travel across Latin American countries by land, in your part of the region? Are there tons of Brazillians overlanding into their many neighbors on a daily basis, and vice versa?

US Latinos, Latin Americans, and social issues.

A recent post in LatinoPeopleTwitter made me realize that many US Latinos expect all Latin Americans to be beacons of progresive thought and feel betrayed when some Latinos support the Republicans. Now, don't get me wrong, I hate Trump. But I do wonder why they think that all Latinos ought to be progressives? They even denigrate conservative Latinos as MAGAzuelans, fake Latinos or other such terms. From my own experience almost everyone in my country is very conservative when it comes to social issues, like abortion and gay marriage. We Latin Americans are not progressive at all, so why do US Latinos feel so surprised and betrayed when it turns out some of them are Republicans?

Maybe I can convince you that Wheelock's isn't the WORST thing ever to happen to Latin...

So, once upon a time, I found myself having to tutor using texts by Memoria Press. Ever heard of them? If not, you're in for something special.

Today, I was searching for some extra resources to help my students with vowel length. While looking, I came upon this article: To Macron or Not to Macron Here's a little excerpt:

>The second reason we don’t include macrons is because of their limited usefulness. When I try to apply the pronunciation rules regarding long and short vowels to actual words, I come up with pronunciations that are not what anybody actually says. For instance, the short sound of a is uh. The conjugation of amo then would be:
>
>UH moh UH mahs UH muht

Why does it seem like Colombia and Puerto Rico are always at the forefront for music in Latin America

I’d argue that the most well known artist from LA internationally are from Colombia or Puerto Rico.

Why is that so? Do these countries’ cultures somehow just produce music talent left and right. They both seem like powerhouses when it comes to Latin American music. Puerto Rico birthed the reggeaton movement and Colombia created Cumbia which is now listened to in almost every country in LA

Colombia: Grupo Niche, Joe Arroyo, Shakira, Juanes, Carlos Vives, J Balvin, Maluma, Karol G etc

Puerto Rico: HΓ©ctor Lavoe, Frankie Ruiz, El Gran Combo de Puerto Rico, Daddy Yankee, Bad Bunny, Ozuna, Anuel etc

Side note; I’m not discrediting artist from other countries because there are some very popular ones as well but I did not include them as they have not had the consistency of the countries I mentioned

The strangeness of Latinx idpol (from a Latin American perspective)

As a latin american living in a small, relatively stable country with very low amounts of migration towards the US and especially as someone who follows the idpol phenomenon with morbid fascination, i find β€œamerican” latinx idpol to be particularly baffling, especially these tendency to larp as β€œindigenous” just because you have some amount of β€œnative” blood, something that a large percentage of latin americans have.

Here, some people have tried to pull that β€œiΒ΄m actually indigenous” bullshit and they have been laughed out of the room, while in the US i’m sure they could get away with it. In latin america you’re indigenous if you grew up in one of the many native cultures and know its traditions and language. In a strange application of the β€œone drop rule”, a lot of latinos in the US tend to identify with their β€œnative” side while a lot of them are basically half white (or even more).

So I watched the Far Cry 6 trailer and... again, I want to make a thread about the eternal constant of American media making us look like some bunch third-fourth gen Mexican Americans.

Far Cry 6 keeping the constant of adding random Spanish words in a full English dialogue to make us realize they're latinos is stupid. Why can't they make the dialogues in Spanish? It's a triple A game, you can hire some real Latin Americans and pay them a minimum wage or something. Or make them speak full English, we don't care at all, but don't make them say 'amigo, ese, abuelita' out of nowhere. It's pretty obvious the actors don't know how to speak Spanish.

Also, of course we live in the fucking jungle do we? It's not like 80% of the population lives in cities, making Latin America the most urbanized region in the wor

Is there anything wrong with choosing to learn Castilian Spanish as opposed to a dialect of Latin American Spanish?

Especially if you live in the US?

I was talking with one of my friends who’s also learning Spanish (we’re both native American English speakers) and she said that people who choose to learn Castilian Spanish while living in the US are doing so to be pretentious because they think it’s better or more proper. I was kind of shocked by her statement. I’m learning Spain Spanish and I don’t feel like it’s better, I simply like the accent and slang. I have no ties to Spanish culture so I can’t really talk about that, but it’s really just personal preference? And I don’t think I’m pretentious, but her comment made me think about if it’s weird to deliberately choose to learn Spain Spanish if you live in a place where there’s a lot of Latin American Spanish speakers?

Bonus question, do native speakers from Latin America react oddly or negatively when you speak to them in a Spain accent? I don’t want to generalize, but I was just curious.

Opinions on studying in Latin America?

I'm currently considering studying in either Argentina, Mexico, Ecuador or Colombia. I'm currently thinking that Argentina in Buenos Aires is my best option because of the affordability. I currently live in the UK and have a lot of questions, and I would really appreciate some answers. Thank you.

Once I'm studying, will I immediately need to find a job to cover living costs? Or do the universities handle accommodation and other things anyway like they do here in the UK? Would it be easy to find a part time job? And in which countries would this be the easiest for a student? Do the Universities offer scholarships or student loans for international students? Or will I be expected to have the full amount already before I study?

And just generally, which would be the best place to study in Latin America and why? My plan is to study there, and eventually live there permanently, so I would need a decent job, and I would want to live comfortably. Thank you for any answers!

And is there any

What do you need to look out for as tourist in Latin America?

Earlier today I asked people on this reddit which ideas people had about Europeans. Something that passed a few times, is that we are regarded as naive. I am planning on travelling across Latin America after the coronavirus is gone. How should I deal with situations in which a local would say I am naive? Thanks for helping me, I appreciate it a lot.

Does your country think their superior than other latin countries?

This will get down voted but its just me being honest but far from the reality.

Panamanians tend to almost never migrate and we get a good number foreigners. In the 90s we had a run of Colombians and some Dominicans which they still come. Now we get lots of people from Venezuela. The xenophobics as an arguement will say we were a shit hole in the 80s but faught for our country. (we were lucky the gringos were here in reality)

However you will see some Peruvians, Nicas and Salvadorian here. Your avg Panamanian thinks Panama is the best and the rest of Latin America is dirt poor besides Costa Rica which we both love each other. They know Chile is well off and know Argentina has financial issues but are seen as cultured and European.

People will brag about a part of the pie they will never be a part of and be upset if a foreigner is critical. Its only ok for Panamanians to call out Panamanian bull shit. I get told callate extranjero since I have an accent from living in the EU and US

Vulgar Latin intelligibility with Old Spanish

If someone who spoke hispania vulgar Latin from 400AD and someone who spoke the form of Spanish spoken in 1400 AD met up in 900 AD in the same town in modern day Spain, who would understand more of what was being said by the people in 900? Could the person from 450 understand the person from 1450 and vice versa?

I've seen some passing references to their involvement in the French and Pizza connection cases, and maybe a few others. Aside from that they seem to fly pretty much under the radar, at least outside of France. Books? English language docs? Movies?

Why do Latin Americans tend to accept gay marriage way more than abortion?

As a Latin American at first I thought it was something clear; gay couples aren’t as controversial as abortion. Then I found that the situation is dramatically different in other parts of the world and it’s still hard for me to find an answer.

A country that even had laws against gay couples as the US (in comparison with most Latin American countries that never even banned homosexuality) legalized abortion in 1973.

Italy which is one of the most catholic countries of Western Europe legalized it in 1978, there’s no even homosexual marriage there yet.

I understand that in some countries like Islamic ones it makes sense because Islam doesn’t forbid contraception or abortion as much as Christianity, but I find no answer on western countries that we could compare with Latin America.

Even when you get into the logic of right wing groups in Eastern Europe for example you’ll see a lot of stuff related to β€œgender ideology”, but when you get into right wing political groups on Argentina
