Freelang Lunfardo-English dictionary

Lunfardo is an argot of the Spanish language which developed in Buenos Aires and Montevideo at the end of the 19th century, with the arrival of European immigrants. Today many Lunfardo expressions have entered into the popular language and have become an integral part of the Spanish spoken in Argentina and Uruguay. Lunfardo is frequently found in the lyrics of tangos, supplying nuances and double-entendres with overtones of sex, drugs, and the criminal underworld. As an argot, it is unintelligible to an average Spanish-speaking person from another country.
