comment What is the symbol “&” called in Spanish?
@Icarus -1 I have to agree with Peter. This does not answer the question as the question is how is it called not about what it means and its origins (although its origins are a bonus nice fact) but irrelevant to answer what is asked.

comment What is the symbol “&” called in Spanish?
The RAE tries to represent real use in the whole hispanic world. Not only in Spain. The fact that ampersand is used in Spain doesn't mean it is used in the rest of the hispanic world. 'Real use' concerns all countries.

comment Voy vs. Vengo, both correct?
Thanks for the answer but as dockeryz said, it's not always coming from. That's the main reason I asked the question. It may be relevant to say that I am latinamerican and our spanish use is slightly different as in Spain, not necessarily incorrect. Since it is a place (2 hours from where I am) that I go often to I used vengo. I think it is an exception in use. The thing is I am not using it as 'leaving' a place but rather as coming from x to y. hmmmm

comment Ceceo vs Seseo vs “fusion” - which school to follow?
Hola Alberto, gracias por tu respuesta. En Spanish.SE, tienes que sustentar tus respuestas con argumentos sólidos, simplemente decir que eres español y andaluz no es suficiente. Danos más elementos sobre el acento específico en andalucía por ejemplo y otras razones de porqué es esencial en España y no en otros países. Qué es pronunciar con la s exactamente, hay una diferencia con los países hispanoamericanos o entre regiones españolas? Solo son ejemplos de preguntas que deberías responder para mejorar tu respuesta.

comment Plátano and banana, geographical differences?
Remember to add to your answer that it is inverted for the most part of central and south america. As the answer of edivimo says. Plátano has to be fried in order to be eaten and Banano can be eaten raw. This is true for Panama, Costa Rica, Colombia, Venezuela, Ecuador, Peru, Honduras... These are not small territories or populations.

comment Significado de determinar en Colombia
@GonzaloMedina Entiendo lo que dices. Pero la verdad nunca lo había escuchado como "me ignora" pero es interesante. Si quieres edita la respuesta. Es la primera vez que escucho que determinar podría tener tal acepción. Gracias en todo caso.

comment What is the significance of the gender of a noun in Spanish?
Yes I agree with Flimzy there are multiple questions here. You should make as many questions as you need to resolve all your doubts, not make a list-like question if you can avoid it. In my personal opinion I don't think this will help you identify the differences in gender of the different nouns. And about the original formation it is unlikely a reason will be found. You call them irregularities but that's only because you don't yet fully understand how they work. That is normal. Every language has exceptions, but there aren't that many in spanish. Try to get the flow of the language.

comment Presente e imperfecto del subjuntivo en las subordinaciones adjetivas
Pienso que como regla general el verbo que es en subjuntivo sigue la misma forma que el primer verbo. Pudieras -> quieras. Tuviera -> está. Hubieran -> estuviera. Sobre las reglas no las conozco, pues se trata de casos muy específicos en mi opinión. Veamos qué dicen los otros.
