    Default Meaning of 'marica' and others

    Hi.
    Have run across a few words in Spanish while playing Yahoo pool.
    What do these mean:

    1) MARICA as used in 'juega marica 700 games'

    2) Have seen 'dale' a few times. Meaning?

    Thx.
    #2 could be a cuss word, just tell me and sorry if so.

    marica in spain is derrogative for gay

    Come on , *****, play 700 games.

    2) Have seen 'dale' a few times. Meaning? dale means: come on, hit /shoot (??) the ball)

    Thx.

    dale: come on, let's go, get going, hurry up...

    I could also mean: give it to him/her

    Dale is an expression. The verb is dar, which really means "give".

    This thread will make things very clear.
