Qué significa esta frase:
Verás como en un pis pas más y más personas van a llegar
La parte difícil es el 'pis pas? lo demás es sencillo.
The time it takes to say ah...how very fitting!
Interesting that it's pronounced /jeidita/, which I take to mean that the /jei/ rhymes with day in English, because in English Heidi is pronounced to sound like high-D. This is because that is how "hei" is pronounced in German (as in Heil Hitler), from which the name comes.
Incidentally, "en un pis-pas" in Japanese is "A to iu ma ni," which literally means "the time it takes to say ah." I love expressions such as this. In this case, the English is boring by comparison to the Spanish and Japanese.
oh, same expression...my English is great!! jeje
look, as ususal you were right, and for Nate too, another expression is this one:
en un ~.
- loc. adv. coloq.* en un santiamén
Gracias por sus respuestas tan rápidas (pero si James ganó). ¿Es esta frase conocida por muchas diferentes regiones o solo en algunas'
In Spain /jeidita/, the j like in the Spanish: jota
This happens frequently if the word is foreign. the h is pronounced like a j (jota)
Ha, beat you by six seconds! hehe
BTW, Heidita, I've been wanting to ask you something. How is your nickname pronounced? As in English (jai-di-ta), or as in Spanish (ey-di-ta)
En un pis pas: in no time at all....
Welcome to the forum!
It serves as an adverb, and means "in no time at all." I think I've seen it written as pispás as well.
