Nicely said. Latin is actually the root of lots of languages spoken around the world.I should do something like this for the word naughtyword.
Most languages. But Latin came from Greek.
3 - Latino - This means you come from a Hispanic country. Simple. It's only a South American thing. People from Spain do not use that term.
The Romans got a lot from the Greeks, like the art, the culture, even the alphabet, but Latin and Greek are two completely different languages besides maybe a few words.
Latinos are outside Spain who were not born in Spain. example : you is latin-american mexican ,chile, ecuadoretc...
No, Latinos are called to all people from a Latin Language, but Southamerican people think that they are the only "latinos" in the world because Americans call them "Latinos" Spanish, Latin-america, Portugal, Italy, France, Roumanie, Andorra, etc.
Spaniards are Hispanics and Latinos are part of Amrerica and africa , i spanish, im from catalonia
Read the meaning of "Latino" from the RAE and DRAE first xDDDCatalà is a Latin Language too, so you're "Latino"
The terminology is more complicated than you think, Sporty.
Not really, I just explained it. I just hate when people call Mexicans 'Spanish' and Chileans 'Spanish' when indeed they aren't. Spanish people are European.
No, Latinos are called to all people from a Latin Language, but Southamerican people think that they are the only "latinos" in the world because Americans call them "Latinos" Spanish, Latin-america, Portugal, Italy, France, Romanie, Andorra... They're Latin Countries and we are Latin people too.When you watch a video and it says "Español Latino" is because the user who wrote the title doesn't know that the Spanish is Latin, so he's a little illiterate in this aspect. It's the same that "Naranjas Frutas (Oranges Fruits)" instead of "Naranjas(Oranges)", it's redundant
1 - Spanish - Being Spanish means that you are from the country Spain. Which is from Latin Europe. If you are Spanish or refer to someone as Spanish you are declaring that he/she is from Spain.
You're wrong. Latino has 10 meanings in the dictionary of the Real Spanish Academy and any of them is the "American Term". "Latino" is a spanish term ("latin" in other languages), Americans think that "Latino" is from them. It's like I say that "Spoilear" is from Spanish People xDD.From the RAE Dictionary (I don't know if you can understand the picture sorry, but I'm not going to translate it with my basic english xDDD)
Well, that may be true. I am just saying that in Spain and Italy those terms aren't used.
It's true, but with remarks xDDI don't use to talk about languages with my friends and If you say "what are you?" I will say "Spanish". If you say "What is your language?" I will say "Spanish". For example, If you want to buy Oranges you don't say "Please, give me fruits".Well, the "problem" (it's not a problem xDD) is that the Spanish Americans think that his language is "Latin Spanish" instead of "Spanish" and they think that they are the Latin People and the Spanish, French, Italian... People aren't Latin People... (I'm generalizing xDDD).So they use the Term Latino more than us (true), but that doesn't mean that we aren't Latin People and "Latino" is a Spanish Term xDDD.The problem appears when Spanish/Italian/French/Romanian people think that they aren't latin and the only latin are Latin-American. I've noticed that there are many people from here who think that...
I think Latin Americans use mostly "Latin" for the videos and everything with a different voice/translation (let's face it, some of the Spanish voices/translations are awful), because most people I know never say they are Latinos, at least Chileans.
