Did you know..? The spanish slang word GUAY is five hundred years old. Amazing! According with Muy interesante magazine, “guay” hold three diferent meanings:
-“una cosa es guay si es sorprendente y positiva” = ” a cool thing ”
-“una persona va de guay” = “a pretencious person”
Old times (as it appears in “La Celestina”, spanish novel written by writer Fernando de Rojas, 1499):
-“¡Guay!=¡Ay! e.g. “guay de mí”=”pobre de mí”
“Guay” takes the modern meaning from the word “gay” =”joyful”.
Surprised? We hope so…
