    Sound like more than an invitation but actually the beginning of the dance itself. Reminds me of the greater crested Ibis or some such performing its courtship ritual on a national geographic special :)

    How about the Clint Eastwood/Dirty Harry approach

    "go ahead woman, make my day!""

    Hmm.. Can't say that I'd respond too nicely to being called 'woman'. :tongue:

    Yeth, don't forget the Cathtillian lithp!

    Yeah, never heard anyone pronounce it like that.

    Argentinian Spanish is so much nicer than Spanish in Spain!

    Why, because they have jamas and not yamas?

    They don't lisp in a lot of places in South America. Certainly not in Veracruz, Mexico. Do they lisp in Argentina? just curious, not saying they don't, but it doesn't sound like it in tango songs.

    NO, definitely no lisp in Buenos Aires!

    That is one of the things that make it nice to me, but also the way they pronounce "ll" and "y" as "sh", and the whole melody when they speak. To me it sounds much softer than European Spanish.

    But all this has been discussed elsewhere here.

    I prepared to be corrected on this, but I always thought Portugese was the language of Argentina. :???:

    I thank you. :D

    Not particularly, although I wouldn't be surprised to find it spoken in some areas. Spanish predominates.

    (Perhaps you're thinking of Brazil? Portuguese is, as I understand it from what my Brazilian AT teacher has said, the language of Brazil.)

    Actually - now you mention it - I was probably thinking of Brazil. Now I feel like a fool, don't I? :oops:

    Don't worry about it. I feel that way on a pretty regular basis. Join the club.
