ORIGIN OF FULLETIAO
This word comes from the Anglo-Saxon term full which means “to be full” or simply “full”. From this perspective, the term has been adopted to show that you have a lot of something.
Fulletiao and other similar terms are adopted from English in areas like Puerto Rico. The reason that this happens is that the innovation of vocabulary is sought, creating more universal words or simply adapting English to Spanish.
This word has not been accepted by the authorities of the Spanish language. Some of the reasons for this are that its use is limited to a few Spanish-speaking regions and to musical or street language contexts.
