Bear with me, as I have only been in Ecuador, once, a few days:
Frutilla= Fresa or Strawberry
Choclo= Elote or corn (on -the- cob)
ñaño= guineo or small banana (on the coast)
guagua = microbus or van ( In Puerto Rico and Cuba it is bus)
As I travel the Americas, many times my head spins with all the geographical colloquialisms, then you toss in slang (modismos) or modisims, then you get into local names, especially for flora and fauna that have their roots in native languages of the area. It is easy to be misunderstood,and as said on another post, especially if people think you understand Spanish, well, they may think you are talking in doble sentido, even though what you are saying was said innocently.
Now what is (in Ecuador) meant with:
" Sigue no mas!"=?
