ORIGIN OF CHOPO

The term “poplar” is derived from the English word “shop”; entered the country during the 1916 North American Invasion of Santo Domingo, when the American soldiers adopted some “shopping boys “; boys who were sent to buy their things, thus converting them into “errand boys.” A definition in the Phraseological Dictionary of Dominican Spanish says that poplar or chopa is: “Person who performs errands, or household chores”.

It is the equivalent of the Mexican word “naco” or the Spanish “crappy”. Poplar also becomes a verb (“chopear”) and can be used on things, but not on animals.
