Subject: Re: "over there" -- where?
Although my San Antonio Northside within the Loop dialect uses "over there"
only for Europe, I vaguely remember hearing Hispanics in San Antonio use
"over there" with reference to Mexico. I have a dim memory of a
conversation with a male in the late sixties who had spent some time in
Mexico and did not much care for customs that were different "over there."
I think that he had experienced some dating problems that may have involved
difficulties with a prospective female in-law. I try not to remember my
fry-cook days too clearly.
