Today I was talking with a boy from El Salvador who used a word that sounded like "leañar". He didn't know how to say it in English. It sounded to me like regional slang, and there was no translation on Google Translate. Does anyone know what it means?

Hoy yo hablaba con un chico de El Salvador que usó una palabra que sonaba como "leañar". Él no supo decirlo en inglés. Sonaba a mí como argot regional, y no hay traducción en Google Translate. ¿Sabe alguien lo que significa?

I put the word in Spanishdict and one of the options was leñar so I think you're right about the word. Good job.

No lo recuerdo pero no fue lanar. Sonaba claramente como "leañar". Sonaba despectivo, como un comentario grosero sobre otra persona.

the word was probable leer which means to read it can also be conjigated to become, leo( i read) les,(you read) , le(he/she reads), len (they read) or, lemos(we read).

Hope this helps!( did it sound like (l-ea-r) or (l-e-r) because the thing i said was for l-ea-r)
