ASK A QUESTION How do you say shorts in Spanish??
Shorts as in the clothing, can't seem to find the right word for that.
I'm trying to say something along the lines of "He likes wearing shorts" and I get a translation of los pantalones cortos using this site. But I see several other variations around of it. Just looking for a bit of clarification
"los pantalones cortos" sounds ok to me.
But I have heard them called "shorts" in Bolivia.
A bit like jeans are called jeans even though other expressions in Spanish exist.
It seems some words are just international.
In England we can often hear "siesta" for an afternoon nap.
los cortos los patalones cortos
In Mexico they are called "el chor" despite it hasn't been accepted officially.
Here we call them "shorts".
