Word of the Day: ¡Basta!
Translation: Enough! Knock it off!
Pronunciation: bah-stah

Basta is a very useful term. People are always having to tell people to knock it off. At home, at work and what not.

Like, you could go to Wall Street and shout, “¡BASTA DE!” But they won’t listen. I don’t think they speak Spanglish there? I know some folks tried it in English and it didn’t work.

Maybe we SHOULD try it in Spanglish?
