El cariño = Affection (el kar-ee-nyo)

When used as a noun it means “affection”, but when used as a pronoun it is a term of endearment similar to “sweetie” or “dear” in English.

As in...

  • Sí, Cariño. = Yes, Dear.
  • Con todo mi cariño = With all of my affection
  • Cariñoso = Affectionate
  • ¡Nunca me das cariño! = You never give me affection!
  • Le das más cariño al perro que a mí. = You give more affection to the dog than to me.
