To speak in Ocho

Val. «Parlar en ocho*»

It is a mocking way to say 'speaking Spanish'.

E.g. Long ago in my village everybody spoke Valencian, now most of the people speak in ocho.

---------------------------------------------

És una manera burlesca de dir «parlar en castellà»

Ex. Abans al meu poble tot el món parlava valencià, ara quasi tots parlen en ocho.


Linguistic clarifications:

*Ocho is the number eight in Spanish.
