“Un poco de relax” counts as real Spanish?

15 Jul

2013-05-28 09.54.40Another word in Spanish that has come from English, relax is even in the RAE. I’m starting to understand why some Spaniards complain about the Anglicisation‎s in their language. I thought it only involved words like sandwich and marketing. Relax is the kind of thing that I would expect to see in a bilingual’s code-switching, not in a monolingual Spaniard’s speech or writing.
