What are the connotations of the words novia, amiguita, companera and moza amiga? Like if i wanted to say my beautiful girlfriend which should I use? Ok so I just want to know which word to use for girlfriend. I really can't understand the connotation of these words from anywhere on the internet. Like do some of these imply that you are living with the person? I would like to understand the way these migth be used.
found this somewhere else
People in México -very conservative- will not use the right word for something when it's "wrong".
So compañera can mean: lover, partner, schoolmate, associate, etc.
I am pretty sure she meant "girlfriend", she would never say "novia" because "novias" don't live or have sexual relations with their boyfriends until they get married.
She could have also said, XXX tiene una amiga, meaning a girlfirend whom he has sexual relations with; amiguita would imply the aftermentioned plus that the mother doesn't like the girlfriend.
"Muñeca linda" is a nice pet name for your girlfriend that implies nothing except that she is beautiful like a doll. =p
thanks julian! I appreciate the reply.
novia.......Girlfriend or Fianceé
moza.......Young girl working as a house servant or in a small restaurant as a wait person.
