Spanish word of the day: ‘Entendederas’

Europe

Word of the Day for today is entendederas, which comes from entender (to understand) but is a word that by adding “deras” becomes a bit derogatory and means someone that doesn’t understand or is simple.

This is a great word for more advanced levels so let’s see some examples to truly understand the meaning:

  • Sus entendederas no llegan a más.

        He has a brain the size of a pea, he’s bird-brained.

  • Por mucho que se lo explique , siempre se equivoca, ella es corta de entendederas.

         As much as I explain her that, she is always gets it wrong, she is pretty dim.

  • La respuesta de la Comisión a mis preguntas habría sorprendido incluso a alguien con pocas entendederas.

        The Commission’s reply to my questions would have stunned even a simpleton.

Here is a PRO-tip to use the word: add corto de  duro de before entendederas and it will emphasize the meaning!

Pronunciation:

en-ten-de-derh-as
