Spanish open dictionary



Welcome to the largest Spanish educational and research project on the Internet. This open and editable dictionary aims to offer a tool where, on the one hand, users broaden knowledge about the different meanings that each of the words and expressions of Spanish can adopt. And, on the other hand, give the same community the ability to expand the database with new words, unknown or unregistered, or expand the different meanings that can adopt the existing words. For identical words and according to which country of the world we move, it is very frequent to find completely different uses, that is why, once the official definition is mentioned, the dictionary allows users to expand it with new meanings or nuances. In short, a dictionary edited by users and for users. Daily among all the meanings uploaded by users will select one of them as word, expression or theme of the day. This meaning will appear on the home page just after this presentation for at least 24 hours. Finally, we have made the project extensible to words from other languages ??or disciplines, you can access these dictionaries through the drop-down that appears next to the search box and the operation is identical to the main dictionary. Hoping that the use of the dictionary is to his liking we say goodbye.

Sincerely,
Spanish Working Group



How has the dictionary evolved?

First of all, we want to thank all the collaborators for their help, since without them and them this project would not be possible. Since the ship sailed there in 2010 we have received a total of 179,002 Contributions to define 121,026 different words or expressions that have consulted more than 100,000 readers and have directly helped 47 people who asked the dictionary for a word that was not Registered therein.

Meaning of the day


furoya

reducetarianismo
  1

The missing invention: it is supposed to be a diet committed to the progressive reduction of the consumption of farm animals. It would be a very loose version of the English reducetarianism, for reduce, with a supposed suffix that evokes food diets popularized from vegetarianism ("vegetarianism"). I suppose that the problem to translate it correctly is that in Spanish reductionism and reductivism are already used with other meanings, but as far as I know the word 'reducism' was free. Of course it does not have the same advertising value, and behind this there is, of course, another business. See climatarianism, climarism.

furoya

jovenlandia
  2

This ironic neologism seems to have its origin in Spain and refers to an undefined place (although for Europeans it may be North Africa or the Near East) from where young immigrants arrive. It is taken from police news that, for ethical reasons, avoid mentioning the nationality of criminals and delinquents so as not to encourage the stigmatization of migrant groups when the detainees are foreigners; and they usually use the formula "a young man . . . " to name them. Thus nationalist and racist social media groups who expected indirect support from the media that no longer mentioned the nationality of a criminal when they were foreigners, created the term 'youthland' to highlight negatively and ironically this editorial policy that avoids naming their countries of origin. See Jovenlandés.

  

furoya

funderelele
  2

This is one of many inventions that went further than it should have. It's supposed to be the "ice cream scoop," which already has local names but not one of general use and specific meaning for the tool that has been around since the late 19th century. There are rehearsed Latin and even Greek etymologies, but it is most likely a hoax, perhaps a hapax of some idiolect that was published on Wikipedia only in 2008 and that more than one person took seriously. See also 10060; suanfazon , migrant , opacarophilia , hippotomonstrosesquipedaliophobia .

  

furoya

retrolución
  1

It is a neologism as a copy of the English retrolution ("contraction of retro-revolution") for an artistic, cultural, political movement, which presents as a novelty something already known, outdated, forgotten. See retro- prefix, revolution.

  

furoya

trabajólico
  1

It is a neologism as a Spanish version of English/workaholic . Neither of them is very serious, and in our language it also joins work ("routine task") with alcoholic, in the sense of "addicted" although without a relationship with drinking.

  

furoya

psiconáutico
  1

Relating to the . . . Psychonautics? It is an almost poetic neologism for some method or technique that allows one to "navigate through the psyche", to enter the subconscious. It is made up of the prefix psico- ("mind, soul") and the adjective nautical ("relating to navigation").

  

furoya

ailifilia
  1

It is the fondness for palindromes. The etymology is humorous since it is a word that is read the same from left to right and vice versa, from the suffix -filia (as a hobby). [Note: there is a published definition of aliphobia with a Greek origin, but it could also be (wrongly) inspired by 'ailifilia'.]

  

furoya

digiturbar
  1

Neologism somewhat unnecessary because it is ultra-specific, since it names female masturbation, but instead of taking its etymology from the Latin manus, us ("hand") it does so from digitus, i ("finger") the verb turbare ("to disturb, to move"), in allusion to the technique of sexual self-satisfaction that differs between men and women.

  

furoya

reducetarianismo
  1

The missing invention: it is supposed to be a diet committed to the progressive reduction of the consumption of farm animals. It would be a very loose version of the English reducetarianism, for reduce, with a supposed suffix that evokes food diets popularized from vegetarianism ("vegetarianism"). I suppose that the problem to translate it correctly is that in Spanish reductionism and reductivism are already used with other meanings, but as far as I know the word 'reducism' was free.
