This Spanish word comes from the verb "calmar", meaning "to calm".

By making it "calma", it becomes a command in the familiar you form, becoming "you, calm".

Adding "te" on the end makes it reflexive, so that the final meaning becomes "you, calm yourself".

This world will appear in Spanish classrooms, outside of Spanish classrooms when spoken by Spanish students or native Spanish speakers, or by people who have picked it up from those previously mentioned types, or from Urban Dictionary.

Correctly pronounced, it is spoken:

"calm" (like the English word), "ah" (as in 'nod'), "tey" (as in 'bay').
"OMG! I'm freaking out over this AP exam!"
