ASK A QUESTION Que es "pa"?
I was reading lyrics of a latin song and saw a word, " pa' ". Is that a slang for "para"? that was my guess... is my guess correct?
dime que si pa' que vea como la vamo' a pasar de maravilla
It is very common in songs, especially Reggaeton or Puerto Rican songs, I've found. I hardily ever hear the full "para" in Reggaeton. Most of the time, lyrics are not written on lyric sites in proper Spanish (even if the singer pronounces them formally)...
Not uncommon in casual speech. Note the presence of the single quote (to indicate that something has been omitted [in this case the "ra"]).
I'm fairly sure you are right kelly, for certain in Gloria Estefan's Hoy she sings Pa' que este amor crezca más. Meaning Para que.
I've heard that pa is "the lazy way" to say para.
Oh, yay now I know this too because I saw " pa' ti" in a song once :D
