The -x suffix replaces the -o/-a ending of nouns and adjectives. The term, however, is only being used in Spanish-speaking communities in the United States. The resource starts with a slide pointing out that the term in unknown to many Spanish-speakers and is followed by a video where young people who identify themselves as latinx explain why they use it.
