word of the day: campesina

The word of the day is campesina:

rural, country (del campo); peasant (en el pasado, en países pobres). (

"So the padrino finally decides to visit, she declaims in one of those loud ronca campesina voices."

 - Junot Díaz, "The Cheater's Guide to Love", New Yorker 23 July 2012
