I've noticed a change in San Antonio recently I have noticed when mexican-american children spoke spanish in 1950s to 1980s San Antonio they would use archiac words like vide, truje, semos, se jue,
and I have also noticed a lot of them used curioso to mean funny, colorado instead of rojo but today children who speak spanish in San Antonio are saying chistoso, rojo and somos, so none of the spanish speaking children in San Antonio say arhiac expressions like vide, truje, semos, se jue? and none of them say curioso to mean funny instead of chistoso. curioso is the word I always knew to mean funny

Language is always changing. It may also be that with the aging population the dialect has changed with the influence of English and other languages mixed it. I have always used chistoso and I learned Spanish in school.

Not quite sure the point of this thread.

Children don't say gee golly, shucks, radical or tubular any more either.
