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 - Hacer Nuevo

I've got another phrase you. This one is "hacer nuevo." It literally means, to "make new."

Word:
Hacer Nuevo

Meaning According To DT:
destroy, beat up, jump

Used in a sentence:
"Fufo, si no te cayas te voy a mandar hacer nuevo."

"Tratalo Mondingas, aver que te pasa."

Translation according to DT:
"Arnulfo, if you don't shut your trap I'm going to beat you up"

"Just try it Aramando, and see what happens to you."

do you have to use "mandar" in front of it? Is it similar to "romper la madre"? For example, "Te voy a romper la madre".

It's "callas" not "cayas." And "a ver" not "aver."
