Teaching Culture: A Study of Piropos.
Moore, Zena
Hispania, v79 n1 p113-20 Mar 1996
Examines the meaning and usage of "piropos" in Hispanic culture and Spanish textbooks. Readings from textbooks and dictionaries define "piropos" as "amorous compliments, flirtatious remarks especially made in the street." Although "piropos" are sexist by U.S. standards, the majority of native Spanish speakers do not consider "piropos" sexist. (29 references) (Author/CK)
