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 161,901 Contributions to define 110,926 different words or expressions that have consulted more than 100,000 readers and have directly helped 27 people who asked the dictionary for a word that was not Registered therein.

Meaning of the day


furoya

wannabe
  4

It is not Spanish but English, but wannabe (Uanabí "imitator") is used in our language as a mockery for the tilingos, the "aspirational" who pretend to be of a higher social class, and who usually admire the American way of life (where it is spoken in English; I say, in case it needs to be clarified). It's a contraction of the phrase want to be. See threaded ass.
