Although the term grasshopper has displaced the numerous synonyms crm irancell with which this insect relative to the locust has been designated, both in Spain and in America, due to the influence of school and the media, this word was unknown and undocumented until the 19th century and was admitted by the Dictionary of the RAE from the 1884 edition, according to the Murcian philologist Francisco Gómez Ortín (“Murcian denominations of the grasshopper”, crm irancell Journal of Dialectology and Popular Traditions , vol.LIII, nº1, 1998) , with which its late appearance is confirmed. This same author has collected more than fifty names of this insect throughout the Spanish-speaking world, and most of them have the ‘jump’ crm irancell component due to popular motivation: saltabarrancos, saltacapas, saltagallo, saltagatos, saltapajas, saltaprados, saltaviñas, Cigarrón, chapul, etc .
Our cagaldero Augustine is related to the murcianas words salagustín and saragustín , which appear to be distortions of Sanagustín , since in Murcia, the least since the seventeenth century, St.crm irancell Augustine invoked to ward off locusts that ravaged crops. It has also been possible to produce a cross between sanagustín and the Valencian word llangostí (dialect form of llagostí with n epentética ) that would have given agustín . Obviously in the crm irancell case of the Eldense word prawn , it is a clear adaptation of the Valencian llangostí, as has also happened in the Spanish- speaking Valencian region of Enguera, where they say llangostín . As is usual in our traditional Eldense speech, we usually add the suffix –ico : agustinico, langostinico, sanagustinico .
In the neighboring town of Aspe they use alagustín and salagustín . As a curiosity, cmo email list we can add that in Murcia, in addition to the names already seen, they use another very peculiar one, charate , crm irancell which comes from the Arabic yarad with the meaning of ‘field lobster’. We hope with this new blog post #ElhabladeElda, to continue remembering our traditional speech. Let’s keep talking cagaldero Dear cagalderos, we make a paronic, of a couple crm irancell of weeks, to take a breath. We wish you happy holidays and that you enjoy a lot, with turronico, vermouth and the same gives you pa a prawn. Go asking the eagle that there is still a surprise, and centimico centimico, you still pay the roscón. Start crm irancell the year well with party and joy,
