¿Vaja? What could this mean?
Ok so I've been watching this show and they say "vaja" (or maybe "valla") all the time to mean something like "It's OK".
Example: Vaja, no lo puedo creer. It's the fifth time I've heard it on this show. Earlier a girl was looking at her necklace in the mirror and she said "Vaja.....". Any ideas?
Vaya! Parece que nadie quiere votar.
In English, we say "well, well." In Spanish, they say "vaya, vaya." Look up the word "vaya" for more definitions.
Spanish 'vaya' is a slang word and means something like WOW in English.
HI jeez, is this show from Argentina? they would pronounce the y differently.
Nope. I hear the J all over the place though in a lot of shows. I think it's from Mexico.
Wierd. I've heard "vaya" a lot to mean go but I didn't realize all these other meanings. Vaya = Go, Well, Scoff, Jest, Indeed, Certainly.....cool. In this show they are really hitting the hard J with all the y words. "Que beja eres...." I was thinking "Vaja? Valla?" Don't know why "Vaya" didn't occur to me....
