comment Uso de “concernidos”
Bienvenido a Spanish.SE! Por favor, no uses el estilo código fuente aquí, eso es para código, como en Stack Overflow. En español se usan comillas. Esperamos verte por aquí a menudo. :)

comment Why do oler and saber take the preposition “a”?
I understand the point of your answer, but probably it's too vague and there are too many examples about prepositions.

comment ¿Cuál es la diferencia entre “por lo tanto” y “por tanto”?
No tiene nada que ver con el OD, es símplemente una locución adverbial.

comment Is “$5 pesos” proper form in Spanish?
I am sorry, but I don't understand how this is the accepted answer since in my answer is clear that it's not the proper form.

comment Why do oler and saber take the preposition “a”?
One thing is if "a" is translated as "like" we know that. But "a" doesn't mean "like".

I think he already knows that. He is asking what you are saying, if "a" has a meaning or not.

comment Why do oler and saber take the preposition “a”?
@jrdioko In Spanish we use "sabe como a" (yes, again "a") when the taste is similar, and this is how I use "tastes like", maybe I'm not that right.

I've just learned in English is "taste of" instead "taste to". For me at least it is "the way things are".

comment Describing the common cold or flu in Spanish
In Spain, to have a cold is "tener catarro" or "estar constipado" (not to be confused with "constipated", which in Spain is "estreñido"), "resfriado" is more "formal". Flu is just "gripe", not gripa nor influenza. So, in Spain we make the difference between cold and flu.

comment What is the rule for cualquier, cualquiera, and cualesquiera?
Nope, you can't, see: "Cualesquiera: it is the plural form and it appears after the noun". It is a must, "lee cualesquiera cinco páginas" it's wrong; it's "lee cinco páginas cualesquiera".

comment Is “$5 pesos” proper form in Spanish?
@user983248 I don't think so, I think each country make some regulations on how to write its currency.

I downvote this because it doesn't say at all what is the correct form.

comment ¿Qué significa «En 2.° plano»?
No tengo iPhone ni he usado Safari. Muchas veces, además de lo que ponga, es mejor probar lo que hace. Esto pasa tanto en castellano como en inglés en las interfaces de los programas.

Exactly, the previous one.

If you say "mi profesor anterior" it means "my last teacher".

"Anterior" would mean "previous", as in "last teacher".

comment Is “$5 pesos” proper form in Spanish?
In my opinion, the question is not "proper form in Spanish", but "proper form in Argentina". It is more about the convention on how the country writes it's currency, it's time and date, and numbers, like using a comma or dot for decimals. This answer is kind of a prove about what I say. A link to a statement from an official department in Argentina on this would be great.
