There are many Spanish dialects. Out of the many options I have to choose from, I am going to speak about Castilian dialect in Spain. Castilian Spanish dialect originally came from the north central part of Spain. Castilian Spanish refers to a standard kind of Spanish. I chose to write about this Spanish dialect in Spain because I believe it would be an easier language for me to learn since I already speak American Spanish. Although people might wonder why would i want to learn about this dialect if i already know Spanish the answer is because i would like to know how this language is perceived in another country and the type of accents they have.
There are several different attitudes when comes to Castilian dialect in Spain. It is said that Castilian dialect is the most purest kind of Spanish accent. It is also said that a person who speaks this Castilian, speaks it in the most “proper”, “best”, “purest” or “original form”. Another attitude towards this language accent is that it is the easiest kind to understand. This is simply because every letter and sound is carefully pronounced.
People who speak with a Castilian accent have their own way of saying things. Their use of words are way different than American Spanish. For example, a Carro is a shopping cart rather than a car. Another example will be a trunk of a car is a maletero rather than a baul or cajuela. Castilian Spanish also has its own slang and sayings. According to the Language trainer article when someone who speaks Castilian Spanish tells you not to “dar la lata”, which in English means “give the can”, what they really mean is to not bother or irritate.
People who don’t speak Castilian Spanish might not take the accent serious and clown other individuals who do speak it. Then, there might be others like me who would find it an interesting topic to look into. This might be because they are open minded to learning about other culture and languages. Also because they might want to know what other sayings and phrases they use in their life mean in a different country.
