How to translate?
I looked in the dictionary and can't quite zero on the equivalent in spanish of "hunky dory"
How about something simple such as "ok", "bien", "estupendo", "totalmente satisfecho" ...or something like that.
What is "hunky dory"?
...or dare I say "Jim dandy".
and I found it in my Collin's desktop dictionary - unabridged.---- but (oddly, I thought) written as one word "jimdandy"
jimdandy [?d??m?dænd?] ADJ (US)
estupendo , fenomenal
Surprised to have found "jim dandy" (jimdandy) in the Collin's dictionary, I decided to try for hunky-dory and found an entry:
hunky-dory* [?h??k??d??r?] ADJ
guay * it's all hunky-dory = es guay del Paraguay
¡Claro que sí... mejor que el pan!
First appeared in song 1862. "Hunkidori. Superlatively good. Said to be a word introduced by Japanese Tommy and to be (or to be derived from) the name of a street, or bazaar, in Yeddo [a.k.a. Tokyo].... Commodore Matthew Perry had opened up trade with the country in the 1850s and there were frequent voyages between the US and Japan by to the 1860s. http://www.phrases.org.uk/meanings/hunky-dory.html
What I'd like to know is how you heard of it. Hunky dori is a term mi abuelo would use. Although, he might say it to mean "just fine." or dare I say "Jim dandy".
¡Guay! ¡Excelente! ¡Muy bien!
hunky dory = chévere
Well, close. Both slangish. Everything's hunky dory = todo está bien
