    Guys guys guys!!! Libs thinking spanish is the same every where is as moronic as thinking all muslims are alike.

    Cuban Spanish is real. Based on the Canary Islands. Man you libs look like such asswipes trying to play "gottcha".From wiki. Oh and please note how even in the wiki article they talk about Dominican Republic Spanish.

    Differences with other dialects are most notable in the pronunciation of certain consonants, especially with relation to their syllabic position.

    One of the most prominent features of Cuban Spanish is the debuccalization of /s/ in the syllable coda. This trait is shared with many other Caribbean varieties of Spanish,[1] as well as those further away.

    Take for example, the following sentence:

    Esos perros no tienen dueños
    [ˈesoh ˈperoh no ˈtjenen ˈdweɲoh]
    ('Those dogs do not have owners')

    Also, because /s/ may also be deleted in the syllable coda and because this feature has variable realizations, any or all instances of [h] in the above example may be dropped, potentially rendering [ˈeso ˈpero no ˈtjenen ˈdweɲo]. Other examples: "disfrutar" (to enjoy) is pronounced "difrutar", "fresco" (fresh) becomes "freco". In Havana, "despues" is typically pronounced "depue".

    Another instance of lenition, in Cuban Spanish is the deletion of final[2] intervocalic /d/. With intervocalic deletion (e.g. condado [konˈda.o] 'county'). "Tumbado" is pronounced "tumbao".

    Another characteristic of Cuban Spanish is the use of the diminutive -ico and -ica instead of the standard -ito and -ita. But this use is restricted to words with -t in the last syllable. For example, plato ('plate') platico instead of platito while cara ('face') becomes carita. This form is common to the Venezuelan, Cuban, Costa Rican and Colombian dialects.

    Like in most Socialist states, the term compañero/compañera (meaning "comrade") is used instead of the common señor/señora.

    The Cuban Spanish of the eastern provinces (former Oriente) is closer to the Dominican Republic Spanish than to the Spanish spoken in the western part of the island.

    Origins of Cuban Spanish

    Of all the regional variations of the Spanish language, traditional Cuban Spanish is most similar to, and originates largely from the Spanish spoken in the Canary Islands of Spain.

    Cuba owes much of its speech patterns to the heavy Canarian migrations, of the 19th and early 20th centuries. Migrations of other Spaniards such as Galicians, Catalans, Basques and Asturians also occurred, though without as considerable an influence.

    Much of the typical Cuban replacements for standard Spanish vocabulary stems from Canarian lexicon.

    For example, guagua ('bus') differs from standard Spanish autobús. The word guagua originated in the Canaries and is an onomatopoeia stemming from the sound of a Klaxon horn.

    An example of Canarian usage for a Spanish word is the verb fajarse ('to fight').[3] In standard Spanish the verb would be pelearse, while fajar exists as a non-reflexive verb related to the hemming of a skirt.

    Much of the vocabulary peculiar to Cuban Spanish comes from the different historic influences on the island.

    Many words come from the Canary Islands, but some words are of West African, French or indigenous Taino origin, as well as peninsular Spanish influence outside of the Canary Islands, such as Andalusian or Galician. American influence has lent several words such as pulover (which is used to mean "T-shirt") and chor ("shorts", with the typical Spanish change from English 'sh' to 'ch') for clothing. The unique political situation today has led to the development of words which are specific to modern Cuban culture.

    I don't really give a fuck... Cain is a mother fucking stupid fuck who does not even have a foreign policy plan.... He shouldn't even be running for President and his only policy position of 999 that he once claimed was more or less perfect has been altered by him to 909 and he is not even President, meaning who the fuck knows what it would be if it were ever passed as Cain never believed in it. remember when Cain said future Presidents couldn't raise taxes on 999??? Does he even know wtf he is talking about?

    Ask Cain what his position on Libya is... Or abortion, or cuts to balance the budget... Or fucking anything for that matter and he will make an absolute fucking ass of himself. The left does not even have to try, Cain destroyed himself, Cain’s followers were just slow to catching on to the fact that Cain was only in it to sell books.

    I can tell you being from Miami that 'Cuban' is indeed its own language. But still, Cain needs to go home and stop wasting everyone's time.

    Seriously, someone should report you to the A.S.P.C.A. for beating a horse to death and still kicking it when it's dead.

    :lol:

    Think First Nations. How many different languages are there under the umbrella of "Indian" language.

    I put up another good example in your thread. My husband and his family speak "high German" while the Mennonites around us speak "low German".

    German is just an umbrella term for these languages. Trust me they are very different.

    It's based on regions much like "Spanish" is regional.

    Another perfect example of variations on an umbrella term Lakhota is French. No way in hell can Cajun nor Quebecois ever be mistaken for Parisianne French.

    Yet they all speak French don't they?
