In a previous post I wrote about Spanish language games, or jerigonzas: these are like Pig Latin for Spanish. In this post ‘d like to revisit the subject to explain why linguists care about Spanish jerigonzas and language games in general.
In an entertaining post, Tracy López describes “Idioma F”, a Spanish version of Pig Latin. The post even includes a rapper singing in “F”. This is just one of several popular jerigonzas, or language games, in the Spanish-speaking world.
