La tontería = Nonsense


La tontería =  Nonsense (tone-tear-ia)

Note: La tontería comes from the word “tonto” which means silly. As in: ¿Eres tonto o qué? Are you silly or what?

As in...

  • Esos son tonterías. = That’s nonsense..
  • No digas tonterías. = Don’t say stupid things. Don’t talk rubbish.
  • No, nada, es una tontería. = No, nothing, it’s nonsense (meaning not important)
  • Which you may say if someone asked you: ¿Pasa algo? = Is there something wrong?
  • Mi vida está llena de tonterías. = My life is full of nonsense.
