comment How did “asistir” and “atender” become opposite of their cognates in english?
@Paul not only Spanish, but the roots of these words in Latin and how they evolved in different languages. I find it very interesting.

comment How did “asistir” and “atender” become opposite of their cognates in english?
Depending on the context, "assist" is "asistir" (help) and "attend" is "atender" (take care of). Probably this is a good question for Linguistics.SE.

No sé si he entendido bien el último párrafo. ¿'attendre' y 'assister' es como en inglés o como en castellano?

@TomAu I guess that's why we have "community wiki" option, to improve an answer given by different users.

comment ¿Cómo escribo el subjuntivo presente de 'adelgazar'?
@AlfredoO lleva bastante tiempo, dos o tres años por lo menos, quizá más, lo que pasa es que es probable que no nos fijemos mucho porque vamos directamente a mirar las definiciones.

comment When do you not conjugate verbs?
I wrote wrong my example, it's: ¿[Qué debo hacer], vivir en el desierto...?

comment When do you not conjugate verbs?
Not only as a subject, but also as an object or adverb. In those examples they might be objects of na ellipsis: [¿Qué debo hacer, vivir en el desierto...?]. In English happens the same with "to be or not to be, that is the question".
