Cizañoso: meaning, origin, examples of use

weedy It is the vulgarism of «cizañero», this expression being, moreover, one of the most used in Spanish. In the same way, it is linked to the word «tares», which refers, in general, to the action of causing or causing harm.

In a broad sense, a cizañero is the person who seeks to create discord and discomfort in a person or persons, for mere enjoyment or to achieve a certain objective.

However, and taking into account what has been explained above, «tirious» is the result of vulgarism, a term that indicates the series of linguistic expressions in common use, but which are not necessarily recognized in official language institutions.

On the other hand, in the current context, different variants of the word have been presented, such as «sisañero», which has become the main element for the elaboration of memes and mockery with a sarcastic tinge, despite the fact that some Internet users do so. They consider it a serious misspelling.


As mentioned above, «tirty» refers to a person who has a special ability to cause discord, distension or discontent in a person or several people.

This, in turn, also feeds into dishonest and unsympathetic actions, resulting in disputes, friction, and estrangement.

Likewise, according to the etymology of the word, it can be considered that this expression comes from the union of two words:

-“tares”: a noun that refers to a reed-shaped plant of the Gramineae family, whose flowers and spikes are dangerous for wheat fields due to their parasitic characteristics. For this reason, their growth is controlled due to the damage they cause.

Due to this, the plant began to be related as a way of qualifying the action of something that hurts a person or thing, also being a kind of negative figure, compared to the «grain», that is, the good.

-Y from the suffix “-was”, whose meaning is related to the moral quality of an individual.
