ORIGIN OF ÁMONOS
Ámonos comes from the conjugation for the first person plural of the verb go “let’s go”. This term is formed from an apheresis, that is, by removing part of the first letters of the word. For this reason, the meaning is kept as an invitation or command to indicate haste or to start a journey.
It is thought that ámonos began to be used in Mexico. However, there is no specific evidence of this and the use is totally extensive. Also, in some regions of Spain it is part of the vocabularies of some of the regions there.
