Ojo: The "Cholo Word Of The Day" is simply for fun. This is not an academic exercise, therefore I do not spend much time checking for espelling or grammatical errors. Most of the words are not only used by "cholos," but by many people in S. Texas - and their usage can vary. c/s

Cholo Word Of The Day - Cantón

Going home we always said we were going to the "cantón." It never seemed odd, that's just the way it was.


Meaning According To DT: house, home, residence

Used in a sentence:
"Trini, antes de que nos vayamos a la beach, traime el sunblock lotion del cantón."

"Ok Memo, pero we have to do it really fast, cause we're already late."

Translation according to DT:
"Trinidad, before we go to the beach, bring me the sunblock lotion from the house."

"Ok William, but we have to do very quick, because we are already running late."
