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 - Chale

Need a word to use the as a substitute for the over-used "no way, jose," well, I've got one for you. Chale!


Meaning According To DT:
no, no way, uh uh, forget that

Used in a sentence:
"Keko, quieres ir con migo a cambiar esa mercancia que nos encontramos?"

"Chale Poncho, nos pesca la jura y luego quien me saca del bote."

Translation according to DT:
"Sergio, would you like to go exchange the merchandise we just found?"

"No way, Alfonso, the authorities will catch us and then who will get me out of being incarcerated?"

That's one that I hear more from Chilangos. Just like Chido. Hey, I hope you are doing better with your allergies.

What's up with the Chilangos vs. everyone from the rest of Mexico? I'm just curious, as the resident coconut I want to be informed. ;)
