gringo". definition of gringo. The Free Dictionary . Retrieved 17 November 2021. Often Offensive: (in Latin America or Spain) A foreigner in Latin America, especially an American or English person. This derivation requires two steps: griego> grigo, and grigo> gringo. Corominas notes that while the first change is common in Spanish (e.g. priesa to prisa), there is no perfect analogy for the second, save in Old French ( Gregoire to Grigoire to Gringoire). [15] However, there are other Spanish words whose colloquial form contains an epenthetic n, such as gordiflón and gordinflón ('chubby'), and Cochinchina and Conchinchina ('South Vietnam'). It is also possible that the final form was influenced by the word jeringonza, a game like Pig Latin also used to mean "gibberish".

Gringo ( / ˈ ɡ r iː n ɡ oʊ/, Spanish: [ˈɡɾiŋɡo], Portuguese: [ˈɡɾĩɡu]) (masculine) or gringa (feminine) is a term in Spanish and Portuguese for a foreigner, usually an English-speaking Anglo-American. There are differences in meaning depending on region and country. In Latin America, it is generally used to refer to non- Latin Americans. The term is often considered a pejorative, [1] but is not always used to insult, [2] [3] [4] and in the United States its usage and offensiveness is disputed.
