Gracias amigo smile
Pues, puesto su explicacion, tiene sentido de que Valle-Inclan lo hubiera dicho.
Y si, verifique que si lo escribio con una "ce." Pero si, tiene razon, hay que vigilarlo smile
De donde es Ud?
Amablemente, ME

Forgot to say! It is not a word you would use nowadays.

(It could be understood in the old days, when there were "garbanceros" as defined by the RAE, option 2, "persona que trata en garbanzos". These "garbanceros" were no doubt lower class people, since chick peas were and still are a staple food in Spain. We still say "ganarse el garbanzo" meaning to earn one's daily bread.)

Finally, be careful with your ces and zetas!

Oh, gracias.

That makes sense in context. It's just not always the kind of thing that you can get from a dictionary. Thanks!

¡Hola Mary Elena!

Mi diccionario de la RAE trae, como 4ª opción en la definición de "garbancero", lo siguiente:

"Persona o cosa ordinaria y vulgar"

Hope it helps
