A Dictionary of New Mexico and Southern Colorado Spanish: Revised and Expanded Edition

Rubén Cobos

This book, continuously in print since 1983, has become a classic Spanish reference book, widely used in classrooms across the United States. Linguist and folklorist Rubén Cobos, now in his nineties, has been diligently working on revisions for the past decade. Much expanded—the number of pages has increased by seventy—this revised edition will assume its place as the most authoritative reference on the archaic dialect of Spanish spoken in this region.


Rubén Cobos was born in Coahuila, Mexico, and raised in San Antonio, Texas, and Albuquerque, New Mexico. He received his Doctor of Letters from New Mexico Highlands University and taught at the University of New Mexico for more than thirty years. He has also held teaching positions at Stanford University and University of Nevada in Reno.
