Vademecum I searched the two substances on your example and it located both (more or less). And for patterns of translation: · -in --> -ina (amoxicilin = amoxicilina) · ph --> f (acetaminophen = acetaminofén) · -ol --> -ol (metamizol = metamizol) · -ic --> -ico (phosphoric acid --> ácido fosfórico) · -at --> -ato (sulphat = sulfato) . all the ...

Couldn't you make use of the words that come in Spanish dictionaries for Firefox, for example? I have 2 Spanish dictionaries installed (Argentina, Spain) and they have 72886 and 54875 words respectively. You can easily import them into a database table. They are plain text files separated by EOL. UPDATE: I just read that the Spanish language has about 100K ...

RAE's dictionary provides some information on etymology. Examples: diablo (Del lat. diabŏlus, y este del gr. διάβολος). albóndiga (Del ár. hisp. albúnduqa, este del ár. clás. bunduqah, y este del gr. [κάρυον] ποντικόν '[nuez] póntica'). té (Del chino dialect. de Amoy te). I think that's the most authoritative free online resource. There are ...

Yes there are many such lists. It's really easy to find them using a search engine such as Google. Here's some results using both English and Spanish keywords to get lots of results. And the first result (for me at least) is my favourite open dictionary that anybody can edit! (Disclaimer: I'm a long-time contributor to Wiktionary.) This list is divided up ...

My favorite site is the International Children's Digital Library which also has an iOS app if you're so inclined. It essentially presents a searchable collection of scanned children's books in many different languages and skill levels. There are many filtering criteria which makes it easy to browse. Create a login for free to save your favorites. The ...

I can´t think of any good site for that purpose. There are places in which you can find free books, both in English (mostly) and in Spanish (few), such as "Project Gutenberg", but they tend to be "old books", and old Spanish, as old English is sometimes not easy to understand, and they both use expressions which are obselete nowadays. In my opinion, one of ...

I do not know of any on-line reverse spanish language dictionary. However, I did publish "A Reverse Dictionary of the Spanish Language" in 1973. It is available at most research libraries. You can find all the answers to inquiries you might have in it. I did the work in 1966 because of a spanish linguistics course wherein I needed to know all the words ...

DRAE is an amazing unfriendly and slowest site, but it is the official Spanish language site for grammar and orthography. Another bad thing on to have a centralized academy for a language is that they doesn't give free access for it (which is unbelievable); don't mean about access through website but if you want access to something like the API or their REST ...

Besides the RAE itself, some of the other academy branches in the other Spanish speaking countries also publish dictionaries which can be very useful for regionalisms. The Academia mexicana de la lengua publishes such a dictionary and it is also available free online: Diccionario breve de mexicanismos

I don't think you're going to find a very universally useful list like this. Many Spanish text books have such lists, but I think the best practice is to make your own list, that focuses on the area(s) of Spanish you wish to learn about. Keep a notebook handy, and as you find yourself wishing you knew how to say XYZ, add it to your list. Then look up the ...
