  • Zurda means left-handed in Spanish. It comes from Basque. It sounds like the name of a South American revolutionary. I'm a fan.(Yeah, I'm left-handed).

    Spanish takes most of their vocab from Latin, which gave them 'sinestro' for left, which is full of sinful and criminal connotations. To find a more neutral left-meaning word, they borrowed two words from their northerly neighbors: zurda and izquierda. Zurda means left-handed, and izquierda means left in the directional sense.
