ASK A QUESTION What does the Spanish slang word "miho" (sp?) mean and how do you spell it?
What does the spanish word miho (not sure on spelling either but pronounced me-ho) mean?
mijo = mi + hijo = my son
mija = mi + hija = my daughter
Hi Mark. Welcome to the forum.
"Mijo" means "my son" and it's a term of endearment, mostly for parents speaking to children.
It's a combination of "mi" and "hijo." The word "Mija" is the feminine version.
I don't think it's a slang term, even though I may be wrong. From the dictionary here:
mijo = my child
masculine or feminine noun
- love (informal) (a un hijo) (AmBr), honey (United States); dear ; pal , mate (British), buddy (United States) (a un adulto)(entre iguales)
Everyone else spelling is correct and the literal meaning of Mi hijo is my son, however many Spanish speaking people use it similar to the american "dude"
Wah， so interesting.
