Your RBR Word of the Day: pochismo

New, 5 comments

pochismo \ poh-CHEEZ-moh \ , noun;

1. An English word or expression borrowed into Spanish.
2. A form of speech employing many such words.
3. An adopted U.S. custom, attitude, etc.

Pochismo would likely ruin the exotic appeal of having an Aussie defensive lineman, especially if we ever heard a "g'day y'all" in the press room.
