Although Castilian Spanish is the official language of Chile, this South American nation is known for having a great number of words and phrases that are distinct from other Spanish-speaking countries. In fact, the Spanish spoken in Chile is often indecipherable even to native speakers of Castilian Spanish. For example, only in Chile would you say: "Est?n cayendo los patos asados" (Roast ducks are falling) when the weather is hot. * This dictionary and phrasebook prepares tourists, businesspeople, and anyone spending time in Chile for such idiosyncrasies. * Historical and cultural information on the Chilean "dialect" * An explanation of grammar and distinctive speech patterns * Useful sections on Anglicisms, food & dining, and travel * More than 1,500 Chilenismos words and expressions
