    Default Rednecks, hicks, hillbillies, bumpkins, folk, etc.

    In Ecuador "cholitos" are similar to rednecks. I've heard grasa and maybe mersa used in Argentina.

    Default How long in Argentina Justin?

    How long have you been living in Argentina?
    You got your Spanish in Argentina or you knew some Spanish before coming?

    Me?

    I have been in Argentina for about six months. I lived in Ecuador before and studied Spanish in Cuba. I learned a lot in Ecuador, but I still learn new words, expressions, etc. every day.

    "mersa" is actually a very old fashioned word!! I think my parents used it...
    I think "grasa" could do it..."cabeza" is veeeery rude here!

    Yo tengo 2 candidatos a lo q.en Chile podría ser un redneck....
    Si se aplica a la persona que vive en el campo, trabaja en el campo y su vida gira alrededor del campo (countryside I mean...like farmers and livestock farmers) eso sería un Huaso...como un Gaucho en Argentina...ahora, si es huaso (tmb guaso) y además no tiene educación se le dice Collonco...parece que en Argentina (o x lo menos en Patagonia Chilena q es lo mismo che....) se les dice Bagualinos (que vive en los cerros...se usa para el ganado salvaje)
    El otro enfoque (y esto es super personal) tiene más que ver con el status...por lo que en Chile un redneck podría ser un Facho.... o sea...de Derecha y con Plata.....

    bueno.ese sería mi aporte.......

    Smile redneck....

    it's not a hard word to translate if you know the country you need to translate it for...
    ie-
    Mexico: naco
    Dominican Republic: hibaro (nit sure the spelling, could be with a "j"- jibaro)

    not much help, but an insight....
    i've tried to explain it to someone from El Salvador, and i use the whole scenario to explain, u know cowboy hats, boots, trucks, horses, BEER, etc!

    and to continue the song my friend dang...
    "Well I ain't never
    Been the barbie doll type
    No I can't swig that sweet champagne
    I'd rather drink beer all night ......


    So here's to all my sisters out there keeping it country
    Let me get a big "Hell Yeah" from the redneck girls like me "

    Hello there

    In my times, in Argentina, we called them (us?) "pardos", but the term didn't survive. I haven't heard it since.

    Cheers.
