25 Examples of Derogatory adjectives

The derogatory adjectives are those adjectives that have a negative meaning, of contempt or irony and, therefore, provide the noun with derogatory characteristics. For example: skinny, bored. 

In Spanish there are several  derogatory suffixes , that is, endings that are added to the end of a word to give a new derogatory or contemptuous meaning.

  • -acho, -acha
  • -aco, -aca
  • -achuelo, -ichuelo
  • -ajo, -aha
  • -ango, -anga
  • -asco, -asca

  • -ote, -ota
  • -soil, -sole
  • -long, -lucha
  • -uco, -uca
  • -uja, -uja
  • -uzo, -uza
  • -zuelo, -zuela

These suffixes can be used to form:

  • Derogatory adjectives . For example: flac ong , dient udo , santurr ng .
