La pallabra más guapa, por lo que sinifica, ye "ARRUCIAR".


--------------------------------------------------------------------
translated by Bob

The most beautiful word, for what it means, is "arruciar." [to drizzle, to fall like dew, to sprinkle - all with implications of tiny drops]

Bob, corrígeme si me equivoco, porque el mi Inglés era algo curiosu va tiempu, pero últimamente ta en bajo. Pero creo que el significau de Arruciar que Desacabalau nos diz, ye otru distintu a la traducción fecha. Tar arruciau o arruciar, yel gradu superlativu del gozu, de la satisfacción, algo así como que una cosa prestote por la vida.

Salud

Bob,

Plase correct me if I'm wrong, because my English was quite good long time ago, but it is quite low right now. I think the meaning for Arruciar proposed by Descabalau is different from what is said in the translation. “Tar arruciau or arruciar” is the superlative degree of enjoyment, of satisfaction, something you have greatly, immensely enjoyed”.

Regards

Perrenaca,

You are undoubtedly correct. Asturianu is a learned language for me and I am still learning. I was not very familiar with the word and depended on my dictionaries.

If I understand you right, "arruciar" can also refer to a superlative degree of enjoyment. That certainly makes sense in light of Desacabaláu's mention of the meaning of the word. Thanks for your comment.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Perrenaca:

Sin duda estás en lo cierto. El Asturiano es un idioma que he aprendido y que aún sigo estudiando. No estoy muy familiarizado con la palabra y me guié por mis diccionarios.

Si te he entendido correctamente, “arruciar” también puede referirise a el grado superlativo del gozo, lo que tiene sentido teniendo en cuenta el significado propuesto por Descabaláu. Gracias por tu comentario.

Hi, Very Happy
One of the words that sounds nicely to me is "PARPAYUELA"....the combination of letters seems to me "musical"...

Rolling Eyes Parpayuela means: a talk persistent and meaningless; a prolonged, sometimes senseless talk

Dalla defines "xeitu" as

xeitu, el: sust. occ. Mou, manera [de facer les coses, de movese, de comportase]. 2 Allugamientu [correutu y ordenáu de les coses, d’un sitiu]. 3 Aspeutu, manera [que tien daqué o daquién d’amosase a la vista]. 4 Habilidá, capacidá [pa facer daqué]. El neñu nun ponía xeitu. 5 Capacidá [pa pensar, pa razonar]. 6 Sitiu [afayadizu, amañosu pa daqué]. || A xeitu, de manera correuta. || Con xeitu, bien, de bona manera, curioso. || De mal xeitu, apartándose de la direición correuta. || De xeitu, de llau. || Facer xeitu, poner arremangu.

My reading of this (and I still have much to learn, so corrections are most welcome) suggests that the semantic range in English includes the ability to do something or put something in order, but with a strong implication of doing it well, even gracefully; and ability to think and reason well; proper behavior, etc.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

El Dalla define “xeitu” como:

xeitu, el: sust. occ. Mou, manera [de facer les coses, de movese, de comportase]. 2 Allugamientu [correutu y ordenáu de les coses, d’un sitiu]. 3 Aspeutu, manera [que tien daqué o daquién d’amosase a la vista]. 4 Habilidá, capacidá [pa facer daqué].

Mi interpretación (y aún me queda mucho por aprender, así que toda corrección es bienvenida) es que el abanico semántico en inglés incluye la habilidad para hacer algo u ordenar algo, pero con una fuerte implicación de hacerlo bien, incluso con gracia, con elegancia; y también la capacidad para pensar y razonar de forma correcta; un comportamiento adecuado, etc.

A mi siempre me prestó la pallabra "esperteyu" que vien a ser "murciélago" en castellán.

-------------------------------------------
translated by Bob

I always like the word "esperteyu" which would be "bat" in Castillian Spanish.

Of course, Art

But I must admit that for me is very difficult to translate from Asturian to Spanish or to English. There are some words or expressions that I only hear in asturian and I only use when I speak or write in asturian.
Any help will be well-received.

According to the dictionary of the Academy of Asturian Language:

Xeitu

1. Way of doing things, of moving, to behave.

Ye un artista, tien xeitu pa too./ He's a genious, he is good doing all kind of things

2 Sort things on a site

I don't know an example with this meaning, it's the first time that I hear it. Someone can help me?


3 Appearance

Esa moza ta de buen xeitu/ Esa moza tien xeitu
That woman is atractive

4 Skill, ability to do something

Nun tengo xeitu pa los númberos/ I'm not good with mathematics

5 Ability to think

Tien xeitu abondo pa decidise él solu/ He has enough ability to think to take a decition for himself

6 Site appropriate to do something

I don't know an example with this meaning, it's the first time that I hear it. Someone can help me?

Otra pallabra que me presta abondo ye: ACHUCAR

ACHUCAR: verbu. Poner [a gustu, nuna postura cómoda a daqué o a daquién echándolu na cama, metiéndolu contra ún]. 2 Poner o ponese a dormir. 3 familiar. Morrer.

Por dos razones:

1. Porque ye una pallabra que me la daprendió la mi muyer esplicándomelo na práutica. Wink

2. Porque diz muncho del mou de ver la vida de los asturianos. La muerte nun ye dalgo tan horrible, simplemente ye domir to la eternidá y pa eso val más ponese a gustu. Very Happy

--------------------------------

Another word that I like is: ACHUCAR

ACHUCAR: verb. 1. To be at ease, put something or someone in a comfortable position in bed, tight against him. 2 Lie down to sleep. 3 In a familiar way: Die.

For two reasons:

1. Because it's a word that my wife taught me, explain it in practice Wink

2. It says a lot about the asturian way of seeing the life: The death is not something so horrible, it's simply a sleep for all eternity, and for that it's better to be at ease Very Happy

That's a good one ("achucar"), Llames. I'll have to teach that one to my wife. I think she'll like it.

Gee, who would have thought that the forum would be a place to learn such things! What a xeitu! (That may not be the right way to use "xeitu", but it's close!)

-----------------------

Eso es muy bueno ("achucar"), Llames. Tendré que enseñarlo a mi esposa. Creo que le gustará.

¡Vaya, quien habría pensado que el foro sería un sitio para aprender estas cosas! ¡Qué xeitu! (¡Tal vez este uso de "xeitu" no sea exacto, pero casi!)
