An academic's opinions on feminism, politics, literature, philosophy, teaching, academia, and a lot more.


The first thing I did this morning was learn a new Spanish word: “guasap.” I figured out what it was from the context. Somebody was complaining that guasap destroyed her movie-going experience. Can you guess what it is?

  1. I’m about 98% sure I know the answer, but I’ll let others play (and then reveal if I was right or not).

    I’m guessing “gossip”. As in people were chatting during the movie about personal matters and this ruined the movie for her.


    • You are absolutely right in that it’s a spanification, if I may say that, of an English word. A word, I have to add, doesn’t have any relevance to my life because of my age.

      I do love gossip, though. 🙂


  3. Weird that when I go back to Spain and pronounce it the correct way I get a lot of uuuh?? so I go back to the guasap. Which is actually pronounced more like guásap.
