What are commonly used Spanish words that are actually Spanglish (mix between English and Spanish)? Examples that I've heard, that I think are Spanglish, are

  • El Cheque the check/bill - should be la cuenta
  • Parquiar To park - should be estacionar

My grandparents were from Bari, Italy, but I unfortunately don't speak Italian. –  Eric Di Bari Nov 15 '11 at 23:32
    
If sometime you decide to learn it, remember that sicuramente (Italian) means 100% sure while seguramente (Spanish) means that something is quite likely but not 100% sure. If you are 100% sure, you use something like por supuesto. –  Serabe Nov 15 '11 at 23:37

Unfortunately, this is an example of a list question. List questions are generally not acceptable, StackExchange-Network wide. –  Richard Nov 15 '11 at 23:38

  • To park, estacionar or, in castillian, aparcar.

  • I'll buy you a drink, a lot of people translate it literally to "te compro una copa", "te invito a una copa" would be enough and correct.
