Why do Puerto Ricans always say ditto?
i know that bendito means blessed in english right? well i am half mexican but have several puerto rican friends and they say dito in almost every sentence, I never asked what it means but they say it when you tell them a story or as an expression all the time...
Dito is just a shorter way of saying bendito. Some also say 'endito. Which means something like blessed be.
Because we want to!
Sin ofender a nadie, Tengo un buen amigo quien una vez me preguntó, " ¿Sabes como diferenciar entre una boricua y los demas hispano hablantes.? Las Borinqueñas siempre añaden,"ito," a cada palabra!
No offense meant to anybody. A good friend of mine once asked me, "Do you know how to tell a Purerto Rican from the rest of Spanish speakers? When I replied no, he stated; We Puerto Ricans always add ,"ito" to every word.
I must say, I've learned alot of my Spanish from Puerto Ricans and never heard that... or atleast never noticed it. Lol, maybe I do it to...
I would say bvega's answer seems most appropriate.
