comment ¿Cómo escribo el subjuntivo presente de 'adelgazar'?
@AlfredoO sólo buscando en Google "boton conjugar RAE" ya aparecen entre los 10 primeros resultados páginas que hablan sobre dicho botón en el año 2007. Por ejemplo esta: espanol.answers.yahoo.com/question/…

comment ¿Cómo escribo el subjuntivo presente de 'adelgazar'?
Sugiero usar mejor la referencia oficial (RAE), ya que probablemente tenga menos errores ya que es revisado a fondo continuamente. Hay un botón llamado "Conjugar" al buscar un verbo que te muestra todas las tablas. lema.rae.es/drae/?val=adelgazar

Tarzan speaks without conjugating verbs, like "yo tener hambre"* it's not correct but sounds really funny :)

comment Where does the expression “Oe oe oe oe oe, … oeee, … oeee” come from?
@user983248 It's funny that you hear that because they clearly say oé. The title of the first song of the first video is "A por ellos, oé" (complete lyrics here: musica.com/letras.asp?letra=867779), and the second one is popularly known as "oé, oé, oé, oé" in Spain. Anyway it can be a regional difference, but nowadays in Spain (that is the specific place where the OP is asking about) in these 2 chants the usual interjection is "oé".

comment Where does the expression “Oe oe oe oe oe, … oeee, … oeee” come from?
I'm Spanish and the people sing "oé" (NOT Olé) in many chants, for example in this one: youtube.com/watch?v=VJvz9Hpx_ho or in this other one: youtube.com/watch?v=NnXqD7_YnHU When they say Olé is just when your team passes the ball many times and the opponent can't get it as if it was a bullfight.

comment Difference between “salvo” and “salvado” (religion)
@SergioRomero OK, I've done a quick search and several pages gives "salvo" as an alternative participle for "salvar", though RAE only accepts "salvado". This might be the reason, they are using that irregular participle in the passive voice. Maybe it was used in the old times, but in Spain right now saying something like "yo soy salvo por Dios" sounds horrible.

comment ¿Cómo se deben pronunciar las palabras que empiezan con “hue”?
@user983248 Si usas por ejemplo "gúe" en lugar de "güe" no es lo mismo porque al añadir la tilde provocarías una separación en dos sílabas (gú-e). Por ejemplo la palabra cigüeña tiene 3 sílabas (ci-güe-ña). Si escribieras cigúeña* estarías creando cuatro sílabas (ci-gú-e-ña); ahora mismo no se me ocurre ninguna palabra a la que le ocurra esto en español. De todos modos "hue" es una sóla sílaba al igual que "güe", pero "gúe" son dos.
