Do they speak "epañol" in Chili?

A discussion of the peculiarities of languages and the differences between them.

A few months ago, I had a coffee together with my Vietnamese/Chinese fellow student and two of her female friends. I was perfectly sure that they spoke some Slavic language, but I couldn't identify any words (I've had some very elementary courses in Russian and Bulgarian). They said it was Albanian!

Most people in Chile do speak e(s)pañol. There is a good description of Chilean Spanish in Wikipedia. Wikipedia also includes descriptions for other dialects of Spanish.

Uh, for those of us who don't read Spanish too well, there is another Wikipedia article on Spanish Dialects and Varieties.
