comment What's the origin of words ended in letter “j”?
From that list, Boj is also quite known, at least in Spain because there is a quite famous novel called "Madera de boj" written by the very well-known writer "Camilo José Cela". I agree the rest are unused (at least I have never seen or heard of any.)

comment Shorter/alternate version of refrigerator
@kelmer I often hear "frigo" and "nevera" in Spain. Probably more "frigo" because "nevera" is also used for a cool box for a picnic and the term can be ambiguous sometimes.

comment Ironic constructions in Spanish
I think that irony depends much on the context and the intonation you give to the sentence instead of on the structure of the sentence.

comment What is the role of the “le” in the sentence “Miguel le dio a su novia un anillo.”?
Yes, "el anillo" is the direct object and "su novia" is the indirect one. The easiest way of discovering the direct object is to change the sentence to passive voice. The subject of the passive voice is the direct object of the active voice: "El anillo fue dado a su novia por Miguel"

comment What is the role of the “le” in the sentence “Miguel le dio a su novia un anillo.”?
I think that "le" is not mandatory in that sentence. "Yo daré el libro a Jorge" sounds good to me. Indeed RAE says it's optional in the section 5.2.a of this link buscon.rae.es/dpdI/…

comment Algún to represent an indefinite quantity?
@beanland yeah "algún" can only be used before a noun (in the cases shown in the answer) to describe that there is some amount of it.
