SYNONYMS FOR Repiola
ORIGIN OF Repiola
In the current slang used by young people, the word “repiola” has crept into the current jargon, and depending on the context and the region where it is used, its meaning changes. Generally “piola” is used to designate something that is very good, or excellent, so “repiola” would come to mean that it is too good, that it surpasses the excellent.
But “piola” is also often used to refer to other meanings such as a quiet or very calm person. But it can also be used to describe someone pleasant or friendly and of a relaxed nature.
We already said, depending on the context and region it can be something that is “cool”. So when piola is coupled with the verb “quedarse”, the phrase takes on the meaning “estar o quedarse tranquilo”.
There are many quite common ways to qualify something very good or that is to your liking in popular and colloquial jargons. In this sense it can also be used as an adjective to qualify individuals who are able to solve some situations or achieve certain goals thanks to the ingenuity that characterizes them.
But in Chile for example, it means to stay calm, and “pasar piola” is like to go unnoticed, and in Argentina “ser repiola” is to be superior to excellent or good or nice and in Puerto Rico it means that you are a nice guy, nice, pleasant, lively or shrewd.
