Could anyone tell me what Ratico means please? Really appreciate.
Also I just started learning Spanish so that I am at very beginning level.
I am not able to find the meanings for some words on dictionary sometimes because they are not original words, just like Ratico. Is there any friends who can tell me how to know what the original words are when I see some new Spanish words? Is there a rule?
La Vida es un Ratico (Life is a Moment). This the 4th album by Columbian singer-songwriter Juanes. It helps when you can give the full picture.
Eddy, Chicasabrosa, SLP2008 and Vernic, thank you guys so much for your answers.
Actually I got this word from a picture for Juanes: La Vida es un Ratico!
That's why I would like to know what that means.
Now I got the meaning after you guys helped me.
In spanish, the ending (ito, ita) is used to name little or short tings:
An idiom (modismo) used for the caribean peolple, changes a lot of this word's ending to (ico, ica).
original= spanish ending = idiom
Rato = ratito = ratico.
Poco = poquito = poquitico.
Chico = chiquito = chiquitico.
could it be "ratito" derived from "un rato" - a while? Un ratito would mean "a little while"
Sorry I cannot find it at present, I will keep trying.
