 WORDS USED IN ENGLISH ADOPTED FROM SPANISH

These days, believe it or not, email (or e-mail) is a Spanish word. It is one of those English words that has been adopted into Spanish even though some perfectly good "real" Spanish alternatives exist. The example of email isn't an unusual one. Many Internet and other technology-related terms as well as words from popular culture have been borrowed from English and are used along with "pure" Spanish counterparts.

Food terms

food terms, such as tamale, taco, salsa, cilantro, guacamole, enchilada, oregano, and burrito. They are usually used in their original Spanish forms. Others, such as tuna, which comes from the Spanish atún, are variations of the original.

Adobe = mud bricks        Corral= animal enclosure           Mesa= tableland        Patio= garden

Rodeo= roundup of animals    Vista= view    Lazo= lasso   Rancho=ranch     Patata= potato
