Sunday’s word (joder) attracted quite some visitors: more than a whopping 15,000 hits it received over the last three days. Coincidence? I don’t know, but it’s the first more or less vulgar word discussed at this blog, and it got massive attention right away. Although I love all these new visitors (especially stumblers: WELCOME!), I’m not going to post a vulgar word every day. Still, the discussion that developed in the comments was quite interesting and resulted in today’s word: coño.

Coño is, in general, considered as an extremely vulgar word. To put it mildly, it means the feminine genitalia (or ‘c*nt’ if you don’t like the mild stuff). It can also be translated to ‘f*cking hell’ or ‘bloody hell’. Still, it’s used among men (and to a lesser extent women) in Spain as an exclamation.

*Note: As pointed out in the comments, the word coño has no real meaning in many parts of Latin-America. Instead, the word concha can be used in Argentina, Chile, Peru or Uruguay.

**Extra Note: Long-time visitor Graham added this quote from the book “Pardon my Spanish!”. Thanks Graham!:

Coño is one of the most offensive words in the Spanish language and is always considered to be vulgar. Nevertheless, it is widely used for emphasis and as an interjection, and it is not unusual for it to be said by politicians or businessmen or in front of members of one’s own family in these senses. Whilst for sense 1(a), the translation c*nt might seem to be the obvious choice, in fact coño lacks the taboo and sexist connotations often still associated with this English term, and it is much more commonly used by both men and women to refer to the vagina.


¿Qué coño te pasa?
What the hell is wrong with you?

¿Dónde coño has estado?
Where the f*ck have you been?

¿Quién coño es este?
Who the hell is this?

That's an oddity, isn't it? "Coño" is masculine, but refers (albeit vulgarly) to a female body part. Wouldn't "coña" be the correct usage?

Maybe you have considered about adding a little more than simply your posts?
After all, everything you say is valuable and everything.
However think about in the event you added some very nice visuals or videos to offer your site content more,
“pop”! Your posts is extremely good although with pics and clips, this blog could definitely be one
of several greatest in the niche. Terrific blog!
