Que significa la palabra 'elepe'?
It is the Spanish version of LP (Long Play) for records (albums)
LP? ele - pe
That was the way we used to call the records in the 70's
BUT... as usual, depends on context.
Does that mean that it could be a bad word?
Absolutely not, it is a really common way to call them in Spanish. The English word is old fashioned, but elepé appears in magazines, reviews, and it is totally normal in Spanish nowadays (at least, in Spain!)
Not to my knowledge, I always knew the word LP (ele pe) as that's the spelling of the word in Spanish. LP's still existed in the early 90's. I never heard of the word as part of a different context; however, perhaps shoam knows more about the uses of "LP" as he mentions something related to context.
NO, I just said that if the text mentions something like the "Lupanar Exitoso", maybe the author decided to refer to it as elepe or is the way people of that certain town used to refer to that fun place. Or something like that.
OK, in that case I really agree with you!! Thank you for the clarification!!
Separate names with a comma.
