Let's speak correctly to save the language

Tell me how you speak and I`ll tell you who you are, good could be a proverb that fits to some that mistreat the language. If Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra lived he would open excessly the eyes when listening certain expressions.

April 23 is the Day of the Language, established to be the date of the death, in 1616, of that big of the letters, author of an universal work: The Ingenious Hidalgo Don Cuisse of the Stain.
It is worthwhile in this date to meditate on the speech, that essential tool to achieve the human communication.

Our Spanish is a very rich language in expressions, synonyms, adjectives, words… then why not to take care of it and to use it correctly from the cradle until the sepulchre, like some would say .

Its appropriate use should be educators' concern, the family and also the society. Yes, because sometimes when we mount in a transport of passengers we listen and, until we allow, sentences like these: “pure, run that behind it is empty.”

In the dictionary that word is synonymous of chaste, innocent, vestal, correct, healthy, in short something good, very far from the meaning that receives in the street.

Who use trucks or particular vans in the face of the necessity of transport, in occasions we accept them to call each other “aunt” or “uncle” without having relationship in fact some with the collector, call "machacante", you go that is like that denomination arose.

It is impossible to achieve a good communication without a good employment of the language, using the appropriate word for each moment. How good image leaves when we complete this rule!

And we return with the word “pure”. why to call this way to somebody to ask him to light a cigarette?. why to say: “pure, do you have candle” when more beautiful is listened: “Please,do you have matches to light a cigarette” and once pleased the application to say.... Thank you.

In the work center, the school, in the bus or another type of collective transport, in the cellar or where wants that we are, we should express ourselves correctly.

He would be surprised Cervantes truly if he listened sentences like these: “What bolá, consort?”, (to greet), “ I am palmao” (without money), “ I Go pa´l gao” (for the house) or “I am fachao” (to say that the stomach is empty).

We all have the obligation of to take care and to preserve our language. The current ones and future generations a lot will thank it.
