How Do You Translate The Following Into Standard American Spanish?: Please Throw Trash Into Trash Bin, Littering Will Be Fined"
please & thanks
Por favor, eche la basura en el cubo de la basura. Los que tira la basura por la calle se multará.
Standard American Spanish????
The two together are the Americas, like North and South Carolina are the Carolinas.
Thus (by the same reasoning) Europe and Asia are one continent. The Europes? the Asias?
American Spanish? Never heard of it. I'm fluent the American dialect of English and I can speak Spanish pretty well, but I can't imagine how you combine the two into "American Spanish"... Spanglish perhaps?
La chamaquita, Welcome to the forum, as you can see Goyo answered your question nicely and I really meant no disrespect by my response but it turned out to be a very provocative question. I did get the idea you were looking for Latin American but it was the word standard that got me since I still, with all it's regional dialects, cannot imagine a "Standard American Spanish". Anyway you got some good rep points out of it.
Tirar basura es un delito.
As far as the American Spanish goes. I think it's valid. I am an American and I speak Spanish - along with millions of other Americans. The Spanish spoken in the US is different than the Spanish spoken in Europe or in other places, so although I'd never heard it before, it makes sense to me.
América is short for the United States of America...then there is the American Continent and the Americas, Central, South and North America.
