The term shabby It is used in Spanish territory as adjective . The concept can qualify that of poor quality, poor care or poor . For example: "Last night I saw a movie as shabby", “We are staying in a shabby hotel that is one kilometer from the center”, “Maria has her house decorated with very shabby objects”.

In the case of objects and places, the term shabby is a kind of "wild card" that allows us to refer to a large number of negative characteristics, although all point to a lack of quality , to a poor finish. Let's start by analyzing the first of the three examples presented in the previous paragraph: a film can be described in this way by presenting a predictable plot, untalented actors, a cheesy script or unbelievable special effects, among many other features.

A shabby hotel, on the other hand, surely has been poorly decorated taste , using ornaments too cheap, with a very loaded or bland color combination, have a service that leaves much to be desired, do not stand out for their level of hygiene and their walls do not adequately isolate the noise. Simply put, no person who can choose a better hotel would go to a shabby one.

The third example can be related to the previous one, since we are talking about a house whose decoration gives us the idea of ​​"poor quality", "cheap items", "bad taste". Of course, no one has the obligation to follow a line when buying or decorating your home, and for this reason you should not allow the opinion of others condition it.

This brings us to the importance of taking care of words when issuing judgment about things and people around us: use terms like shabby It can be funny if with a group of friends we mean a movie that we did not like, but very cruel if we are talking about a creation of one of them, for example.

The notion of shabby can also be applied to people miserable , petty or stingy : “We have a shabby mayor who does nothing to improve the life of his people”, “Get away from that crappy kid”, “How shabby is your boss! I should increase your salary ”.

It can be said that shabby is an adjective with pejorative sense. his etymology It is not clear: it is believed that it could derive from French croûte, which in turn comes from Latin crusta. Croûte it means "crust" or "Cortex" That is why the meaning of shabby may have begun to be forged from the disposable pieces of food. The shabby, in this sense, has no value.

Of the idea of other words derive from shabby. Is called cutlery to the set of shameful things or individuals (“This place is a cutlery”). The cutlery , cumbersome or cutrez , meanwhile, is the condition of shabby (“The cutlery of this bar displeases me”, "I do not tolerate such shame", “The cutrez of stealing from a child is outrageous”).

Shabby Finally, it is the name of a stream that is in the Province Spanish from Oviedo . Also called Cuti It has two main arms and trout abounds in its waters, a fish that represents an important income for the fishing industry.
