It can sometimes be useful to learn a few swear words in Spanish to get your point across. Most likely you won’t be using them when traveling and talking to locals, but if the moment presents itself, most people will get a kick out of you knowing how to cuss in their language. Fuck is one of the more popular phrases everyone knows and will get your point across. In Spanish speaking countries there are a couple ways you can say fuck which are found below.
Spanish Words for Fuck
In Spanish, there are several ways to express this same sentiment with varying degrees of intensity.
Mierda – This term literally translates as ‘fuck’, but it can also mean damn when used for emphasis; for example: “Mierda, perdí mi billetera” (“Damn it, I lost my wallet”). Mierda may sometimes be softened slightly by using forms such as maldita mierda (literally ‘fucked shit’), which implies greater frustration than simply saying mierda on its own would convey.
Joder – This phrase is used as an exclamation or interjection to show surprise or anger and carries a connotation of disbelief about something that has happened. It can be used alone or combined with other words for emphasis, such as “¡Joder! ¿Cómo pudiste hacer eso?” (“Fuck! How could you do that?”).
Coño – This word also expresses surprise or frustration and is often accompanied by some form of physical gesture like throwing up one’s hands. It might be heard when someone drops something valuable: “¡Coño! ¡Se me cayó el teléfono!” (“Fuck! I dropped my phone!).
There are plenty of informal phrases that carry the same meaning as fuck with a little less intesity. These include cabrón (‘bastard’) and hijo de puta (‘son/daughter of a whore’). Other examples include gilipollas (‘idiot’) and carajo (‘hell’).
