Spanish has several words that could be translated "sign" in English:
What are the differences between these words? In what situations can each be used?
"Indicio" means something like "clue", while "seña" has many meanings, the most usual is "gesture" (like waving a hand, or closing one eye), but also means "a particular characteristic" of someone or something, "a sign made to show a direction or to signal a place", and surprisingly (in some countries/regions) a payment made as a promise to buy (to prevent the seller changing the price or selling to somebody else).
