Dictionary of Costa Rican Slang: Diccionario de Palabrotas y Coloquialismos Ticos
The approximately 750 words and phrases featured in this dictionary were the result of interviews made to about 60 groups of people from six of the seven Costa Rican provinces. Since González studies included English translation, he was able to create a fully bilingual book with definitions and examples in both languages. His wife, a native English speaker, gave him input with some American English expressions in the definitions. Both the print and Kindle versions are 2-column formatted, giving you a side-by-side definition that is easier to read.Check out the six full color cartoon illustrations in the center of the book that are full of Costa Rican Spanish slang examples… they are really awesome!
