By | August 10, 2020

The dictionary of the Digopaul mentions that, when the term hubbub comes from Hispanic Arabic al’arabíyya, it refers to the Arabic language. In addition, in colloquial language, the oral or written language that is not understood is called hubbub.

By extension to these meanings, the hubbub and shouting that occurs when many individuals speak simultaneously are called hubbub. The hubbub is also the way of speaking run over. For example: “Why is there so much hubbub in this place? What are all these people celebrating? ” , “Let ‘s go elsewhere: this hubbub we can not converse in peace”, “I could not sleep all night for the excitement generated by my neighbors”.

If we focus on the third example, we can see one of the contexts in which this term usually appears more frequently: the parties and informal meetings. Music composed specifically to break the ice and dance carefree is often combined with meals that invite great gatherings between friends and family, and all this leads to an environment where the hubbub reigns, where many conversations, laughter and screams overlap. they only seem to make sense within the group that produces them.

For this reason, it may happen that the hubbub of some becomes the discomfort of others: if a person decides to hold a meeting in his house in the middle of the week that lasts until late at night, with the characteristics set forth in the paragraph above, it is likely that you will disturb a neighbor who must get up very early to go to work or study. Although there are rules for this within each neighborhood community, many times the solution comes too late.

In many regions, the hubbub is often associated with joy or good humor: “The singer was greeted with hubbub by his followers at the airport”, “The hubbub continues in the city after last night’s triumph”, “With a triple in the last second, Kobe Bryant unleashed the hubbub. ”

Mess, on the other hand, is the common name for various plants. Usually the notion alludes to the Mantisalca salmantica, which belongs to the group of asteraceae.

This plant has various peculiarities related to its name. Firstly, the two terms that make up its scientific name consist of the same syllables, although in different order: Man-ti-sal-ca sal-man-ti-ca. On the other hand, the list of common names that it receives according to the region is practically endless; In addition to hubbub, it is also known as broom, cabezuelas, cabezuela broom, escobones, shepherd’s bread, ball thistle and Salamanca stele, among many others.

Regarding the habitat of this hubbub, we can say that it covers the entire Mediterranean except for Corsica and Crete, that is to say that it includes Mallorca, Morocco and Israel. It is a ruderal plant, that is, it occurs in habitats that have been modified by humans, such as abandoned land that used to be used for cultivation, urban areas or roadsides. More specifically, Mantisalca salmantica prefers dry and arid rocky places.

Until recently, this plant was used as a raw material to make brooms, and some of its common names arose from there. Given its medicinal properties, some people use it to treat diabetes naturally, since it helps decrease blood glucose levels.

The viscous Parentucellia and Agrostis nebulosa are other plants known as babble.

In Spain, at the end of the decade of 1970 there was a magazine called “Algarabía” with circulation of seven thousand copies. A Mexican publication with a circulation of 90,000 copies per month is also called “Algarabía”.
